In this chapter, we'll learn how to build a Simulink model and run the first simulations.
We'll start with a short description of the MATLAB environment features that we need to know in order to start developing a Simulink model.
Then we'll build a simple model to introduce the basics of Simulink development; we'll learn what the Library Browser is and how to place blocks into the Model Editor.
Finally, we'll develop a more complex model implementing a not-so-simple nonlinear system. There will be a small part of theory detailing the physic equations describing the system before the implementation.
Simulink is not a standalone tool, but lies on MATLAB's shoulders; it's almost impossible to use Simulink ...
