Power Systems Simulation Onramp

Free, self-paced, interactive Simscape Electrical power systems simulation course

Since R2023b


Power Systems Simulation Onramp is a free, self-paced, interactive course that helps you get started with Simscape™ Electrical™ software.

Power Systems Simulation Onramp teaches you to:

  • Model, simulate, and analyze power systems by building a simple microgrid.

  • Use blocks that represent common power system components, such as the Synchronous Machine Salient Pole and Wye-Connected Load blocks.

  • Choose the appropriate level of detail, or model fidelity, to model your three-phase power system.

  • Implement AC droop control and solar maximum power point tracking algorithms.

  • Examine the system behavior by using the Simulation Data Inspector to modify the algorithms, parameters, and simulation options.

Power Systems Simulation Onramp uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally. 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.

Power Systems Simulation Onramp describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.

Open the Power Systems Simulation Onramp

  • Simulink® Start Page: On the Learn tab, click the Launch button that appears when you pause on Power Systems Simulation Onramp.

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


If you do not have a Simscape Electrical license, you can take the course at Self-Paced Online Courses.
