Circuit Simulation Onramp

Free, self-paced, interactive Simscape Electrical circuit simulation course

Since R2021b


Circuit Simulation Onramp is a free, self-paced, interactive course that helps you get started with Simscape™ Electrical™.

Circuit Simulation Onramp teaches you to:

  • Use RC and RLC circuits, where R is a resistor, C is a capacitor, and L is an inductor.

  • Implement nonlinear elements to simulate a power supply circuit, including fault protection.

  • Model circuits that contain operational amplifiers (op amps).

  • Simulate electrical filters and analyzes their performance.

Circuit Simulation Onramp uses tasks to teach concepts incrementally, such as through a real-life example with a Wein Bridge oscillator. You receive automated assessments and feedback after submitting tasks. Your progress is saved when you exit the course, so you can complete the course in multiple sessions.

Circuit Simulation Onramp describes the task, displays an interactive model, and assesses whether the model matches the requirements set by the training.

Open the Circuit Simulation Onramp

  • Simulink® Start Page: On the Learn tab, click the Launch button that appears when you pause on Circuit Simulation Onramp.

  • MATLAB® Command Window: Enter learning.simulink.launchOnramp("circuits").


If you do not have a Simscape Electrical license, you can take the course at Self-Paced Online Courses.
