»View Product Info

This tutorial introduced you to the following concepts:

  • The simulation diagram reflects the dynamic system model you want to simulate. This dynamic system model is a differential or difference equation that represents a dynamic system.
  • The Control & Simulation Loop contains the parameters that define the behavior of the simulation. The Control & Simulation Loop also defines the visual boundary of the simulation diagram. Double-click the Input Node of the Control & Simulation Loop to access configurable parameters. You also can expand the Input Node to access these parameters.
  • The Simulation palette contains the VIs and functions you use to build a simulation. You can double-click most Simulation functions to display a dialog box that configures that function. You also can create input terminals for function inputs.
  • You can create simulation subsystems to modularize, encapsulate, validate, and re-use portions of the simulation diagram.
