The Voltage Sensor block represents an ideal voltage sensor, that is, a device that converts voltage measured between two points of an electrical circuit into a physical signal proportional to the voltage.

Use the + and - ports to connect the sensor in parallel with the block (or several blocks) where you want to measure the voltage. Port V outputs the measurement result as a physical signal. Use a PS-Simulink Converter block to connect this port to Simulink® blocks, such as Scope or Display.
