Introduction

Simulink (Simulation and Link) is an extension of MATLAB by Mathworks. It works with MATLAB to offer modeling, simulating, and analyzing of dynamical systems under a graphical user interface (GUI) environment. The construction of a model is simplified with click-and-drag mouse operations. Simulink includes a comprehensive block library of toolboxes for both linear and nonlinear analyses. Models are hierarchical, which allow using both top-down and bottom-up approaches. As Simulink is an integral part of MATLAB, it is easy to switch back and forth during the analysis process and thus, the user may take full advantage of features offered in both environments. This notel covers the general aspects of Simulink, the focus is on Control Systems.
