Owning Palette: Simulation VIs and Functions

Requires: Control Design and Simulation Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Optimal Design VIs to determine the optimal parameters for a system model given a cost function and set of constraints.

Note  You do not need to place these VIs inside a Control & Simulation Loop. This palette is not available when you are developing a simulation for an embedded target.

The VIs on this palette can return general LabVIEW error codes or specific Simulation error codes.

Palette ObjectDescription
SIM Construct Default SystemConstructs a dynamic system model you can wire to the System Data input of the SIM Optimal Design VI. This dynamic system model consists of a controller, a plant, a sensor, and three filters.
SIM Optimal DesignCalculates parameter values that optimize a specified cost function while keeping parameters and outputs within specified bounds. This VI uses a finite-horizon time-domain simulation to obtain these values.
