Modelling and Simulation using Simulink

RheinMain University of Applied Sciences via iversity

This course may be unavailable.


The main objective of this MOOC is to teach you how to use of Simulink® as a simulation tool suitable for a broad variety of application domains. We will specifically focus on topics of interaction of the simulation models with the real world using Arduino Microcontrollers and Simulink®'s corresponding Arduino Support Package.
First, we will explain modelling and simulation concepts in general and introduce Simulink®. As a first application, we show how a simplified model of a Water Treatment Plant is implemented using Simulink®. We will then use an Arduino microcontroller to access hardware in the real world. We will go on to introduce control engineering techniques using Simulink® and apply these techniques to drive an example system of a ball floating in an airstream.
