Impedance Measurement Tool

Compute impedance versus frequency of Impedance Measurement blocks in model


The Impedance Measurement Tool app uses the power_zmeter function to compute the impedance versus frequency of the Impedance Measurement blocks in your model.

Impedance Measurement Tool app

Open the Impedance Measurement Tool App

  • MATLAB® command prompt: Enter powerImpedance(sys), where sys is a string scalar or character vector that is the name of a model.

  • powergui block: Under Tools, click Impedance Measurement.


Name of the model under analysis. Enter the name of a model to analyze, then click Update.

Display or update the impedance versus frequency measurement for the model specified in the Model parameter and, if Save data to workspace is selected, save the data to your workspace.

Lists the Impedance Measurement blocks in the model. Select the blocks for which you want to obtain the frequency response. Press Ctrl to select several impedances to display on the same plot.

Choose logarithmic or linear scale for the vertical impedance scale.

Choose logarithmic or linear scale for the horizontal frequency scales.

Frequency vector, in hertz. You can specify any valid MATLAB expression that defines a vector of frequencies; for example, 0:2:1000 or linspace(0,1000,500).

Select to save the data in a variable in the workspace. The name of the variable is defined by the Variable name parameter. The complex impedances are saved in an array with the corresponding frequencies. Frequency is saved in column 1 and impedances are saved in the next columns.

Name of the variable to save in the workspace.


To enable this parameter, select Save data to workspace.
