Trimming and Linearization

Find steady-state points, extract linear model of system around operating point

Simulink® provides only basic trimming and linearization functions. For full trimming and linearization functionality, use Simulink Control Design™ software.

Functions

trim Find trim point of dynamic system
dlinmod Extract discrete-time linear state-space model around operating point
linmod Extract continuous-time linear state-space model around operating point
linmod2 Extract continuous-time linear state-space model around operating point
linmodv5 Extract continuous-time linear state-space model around operating point
Simulink.BlockDiagram.getInitialState Return initial state structure of block diagram

Blocks

Timed-Based Linearization Generate linear models in base workspace at specific times
Trigger-Based Linearization Generate linear models in base workspace when triggered
