Simulink Design Optimisation

The MathWorks has introduced Simulink Design Optimization, which gives modelling and control engineers the ability to automatically optimise Simulink model parameters.

Together, Simulink Design Optimization, Simulink, Simscape, and Simulink Control Design provide a powerful modelling and control design environment that enables engineers to create plant models, calibrate these models with test data, and use them to design, simulate, and optimise control systems.

With Simulink Design Optimization, modelling engineers can calibrate models with test data directly, bypassing time-consuming trial and error methods. Simulink Design Optimization lets control engineers use optimisation algorithms for automatic controller parameter adjustment to meet system performance requirements.
