»View Product Info

Close the loop between the setpoint and the plant in a dynamic system model with a Simulation function that serves as a controller. When the simulation executes, these functions implement a controller and apply the controller output value to the system, which in turn drives the process variable toward the setpoint value.

You can implement controllers at various locations in the system, such as on a direct path with the plant, shown as follows where C represents the controller and P represents the plant.

The Control Design and Simulation Module provides the following functions that implement controllers:

Insert these functions between the setpoint and the plant to implement the controller. The following block diagram shows a simple example of using the SISO Controller function to create a closed-loop system.
