Description

For courses in Control Theory and Operational Amplifiers.

Ideal for use with Simulink 5 and later versions, this text covers all of the important capabilities of Simulink including subsystems, masking, callbacks, S-Functions, and debugging. Its full range of coverage makes the text suitable for new users of Simulink as well as experienced and advanced users-allowing all students to take full advantage of the power of Simulink. Designed for students with a good understanding of the fundamentals of calculus and differential equations, this text includes a chapter on block diagram notation for students who may not be familiar with that topic.

Features

  • NEW - Coverage of new Simulink features-Including new debugging features, the new help system, and the new Interface.
    • Introduces students to the more user friendly, timesaving features of Simulink.

  • Suggested reading sequences for new users of Simulink, experienced users, and advanced users-Outlined in the Preface.
    • Allows all students to take full advantage of the power of Simulink.

  • Chapter on block diagram notation.
    • Introduces this important topic to students who may not be familiar with block diagram notation.

  • Introduction to Real-Time Workshop-Includes development scenarios, the stand-alone GRT target, and rapid simulation options.
    • Presents students with the latest information and practices in this area.

  • Extensive coverage on the various aspects of programming using Simulink-Includes an overview of block diagrams for continuous and discrete systems; an introduction to basics of model building; discussions on modeling continuous systems and discrete-time systems; explains the use of Simulink analysis tools including the linearization and trim functions; explores numerical issues of concern in Simulink modeling; and presents an in-depth examination of all significant Simulink capabilities including callbacks, graphical animations, and S-functions.
    • Gives students a solid foundation on the inner workings of Simulink so they are equipped with both a conceptual and practical knowledge that can be applied in the field.

  • How to model more complex systems using hierarchical block diagrams and custom blocks called “masked blocks” is illustrated.
    • Furnishes students with visual aids that make the material more tangible and easier to grasp.

  • Introduction to Stateflow-Including basic finite state machine and Startcharts concepts.
    • Equips students with a host of practical applications that are essential to the working environment.

New to this Edition

  • Coverage of new Simulink features-Including new debugging features, the new help system, and the new Interface.
    • Introduces students to the more user friendly, timesaving features of Simulink.
