Simscape

Key Features

  • Single environment for modeling and simulating mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, thermal, and other multidomain physical systems
  • Libraries of physical modeling blocks and mathematical elements for developing custom components
  • MATLAB based Simscape language, enabling text-based authoring of physical modeling components, domains, and libraries
  • Physical units for parameters and variables, with all unit conversions handled automatically
  • Ability to simulate models that include blocks from related physical modeling products without purchasing those products
  • Support for C-code generation
