Types of dynamic systems

You can simulate continuous and discrete systems. You can also simulate systems containing both continuous and discrete transfer functions, as well as systems containing multi-rate sampling for discrete transfer functions.

When you initiate a simulation, Embed first evaluates Signal Producer blocks, like constants and ramps, and then sends the data to intermediate blocks that have both inputs and outputs, like gains and summingJunctions. Lastly, it sends data to Signal Consumer blocks that have only inputs, such as plots and meters.

Embed simulates a system according to:

      Simulation parameters set in System Properties dialog

      Initial conditions for the system set in the applicable blocks

If the status bar is turned on, Embed displays current settings for the simulation range, step size, elapsed simulation time, integration algorithm, and implicit solver.
