In this article, you will learn:

  • How to run a Simulink model from MATLAB
  • How to set up the simulation time of your model from MATLAB

Run a Simulink Model With the sim Command

Let us say we have the following model: 

You can run a Simulink model from MATLAB using the sim command:

% name of your model
modelName = 'mySimpleModel';
% sim will simulate the model in argument

Set up the Desired Simulation Time from Matlab

If you want to set up the duration time of your simulation from MATLAB, you can add a variable in your simulink model: 

Then, you can define this variable in your workspace or m file and run the simulation again as the following:

% time defines in seconds
t = 5;
modelName = 'mySimpleModel';
