Simulink Control Design

Linearize models and design control systems

Simulink® Control Design™ lets you design and analyze control systems modeled in Simulink. You can automatically tune arbitrary SISO and MIMO control architectures, including PID controllers. PID autotuning can be deployed to embedded software for automatically computing PID gains in real time. You can also implement active disturbance rejection control, extremum-seeking control, and model reference adaptive control for applications where the controller must adapt to changing plant and disturbance dynamics.

You can find operating points and compute exact linearizations of Simulink models at various operating conditions. Simulink Control Design provides tools that let you compute simulation-based frequency responses without modifying your model.

Get Started

Learn the basics of Simulink Control Design

Operating Points

Find model operating point from specification (trimming) or simulation time, initialize model at operating point


Linearize model, visualize linearized system characteristics during simulation

Frequency Response Estimation

Estimate frequency response and examine frequency-domain characteristics of a Simulink model or a physical plant

Control System Design and Tuning

Tune PID controllers and other control architectures automatically or interactively

Model Verification

Verify time- and frequency-domain characteristics of linearized models against specified bounds, verify subsystems
