How to transfer output data from one simulation to another as its initial condition

2 views (last 30 days)
I have two Simulations A and B in seperate files. I would want A to run from seconds 0-100 and produce output X. B should be running from seconds 100-200 and uses X as its initial conditions at time 100. Is there any way to achieve this sort of behaviour ?
Thanks in advance for any help!

"then start B at 100 take X as initial condition"?
X is taken for its value to assign to some states in system B?
or, X is feeded into system B as the inputs of system B?

You can try using “Model Callbacks” for implementing this.
  • Set the simulation time for the first model as 100 seconds.
  • Use the CloseFcn or StopFcn callback for saving the output of the first model after the simulation stops.
  • Include an In1 block or a From Workspace block in the second model to collect the output of first model. You can also use InitFcn callback to achieve the same.
For details about setting “Model Callbacks, refer to the following link:
You can also look at the following link to know about callbacks for customized model behavior:
