Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation with Simulink Real-Time
The hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation workflow shows you how to use Simulink® Real-Time™ to download and execute a real-time application that you generate from your Simscape™ model. You can also check for simulation overruns and change run-time parameters for your plant-based application on a real-time target using Simulink Real-Time.
- Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation Workflow
Follow the hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation workflow to deploy a Simscape model to your real-time target machine using Simulink Coder™ and Simulink Real-Time.
- Basics of Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation
Use hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation to check how your controller responds, in real time, to realistic virtual stimuli.
- Code Generation Requirements
Follow the recommendations for minimum hardware and software specifications to deploy your Simscape model for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation using Simulink Real-Time.
- Software and Hardware Configuration
Before you simulate your Simscape model on your target hardware using Simulink Real-Time, follow the recommendations to configure your development and target computers for code generation and real-time simulation.
- Generate, Download, and Execute Code
Deploy a Simscape model to your target hardware using Simulink Coder and Simulink Real-Time.
- Signal and Parameter Visualization and Control
Monitor and control signals and parameters when you simulate your Simscape model on a real-time target hardware using Simulink Real-Time.
- Change Parameter Values on Target Hardware
Change a Simscape run-time parameter between simulations on target hardware using Simulink Real-Time.
- Troubleshoot Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation Issues
Solve issues that prevent you from using Simulink Real-Time to simulate a Simscape model on a real-time processor.
