Description
The Algebraic Constraint block constrains the input signal f(z) to z or 0 and outputs an algebraic state z. The block outputs a value that produces 0 or z at the input. The output must affect the input through a direct feedback path. In other words, the feedback path only contains blocks with direct feedthrough. For example, you can specify algebraic equations for index 1 differentialalgebraic systems (DAEs).
