Control Design Onramp with Simulink

Free, self-paced, interactive Simulink Control Design course

Since R2020b


Control Design Onramp with Simulink® is a free, self-paced, interactive course that helps you get started with control design basics in Simulink.

Control Design Onramp with Simulink teaches you to:

  • Use basic control design workflows in Simulink.

  • Explore classical control theories using Simulink Control Design™ and Control System Toolbox™.

  • Linearize a control system plant with Model Linearizer.

  • Tune a PID controller with PID Tuner.

Control Design Onramp with Simulink uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally, such as through a real-life example with a walking robot. You receive automated assessments and feedback after submitting tasks. Your progress is saved when you exit the course, so you can complete the course in multiple sessions.

Control Design Onramp with Simulink describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.

Open the Control Design Onramp with Simulink

  • Simulink Start Page: On the Learn tab, click the Launch button that appears when you pause on Control Design Onramp with Simulink.

  • MATLAB® Command Window: Enter learning.simulink.launchOnramp("controls").
