Communication between Simulink and Simscape blocks

3 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I'm trying to connect the signals of Simulink's blocks with the Simscape to simulate the consumption of current in a electrical circuit by a simple load. For example, I created a wind turbine circuit with simulink blocks, and now I want connect the resulting currents with a load of Simscape blocks, but I had problems with that communication. Does anyone know a block that converts the signals obtained in simulink and feeds a simscape circuit ?
I appreciate the help if someone knows how I can do that.

Hi Saulo, you can use PS-Simulink and Simulink-PS blocks to interface between Simscape and Simulink. Use the PS-Simulink block if you want to send Simscape signals into Simulink.
Specifically, this page provides an example on how you can apply a Simulink source of voltage to a Simscape electrical load:
This model uses a custom block called a "Voltage source" block, and I think that configuration should help with the interface you're looking for.

Thanks! I'm new to using Simscape for simulation and was having problems using the PS-Simulink and Simulink-PS blocks to communication, but these examples were very helpful.
