This Simulink model represents the Van der Pol oscillator described by the following differential equation
x'' - m(1-x^2)x' + x = 0
where x=x(t) a function of time and m is a physical parameter.
One can easily observe that for m=0 the system becomes linear.
The user is advised to try different values for m and see the changes in the system behavior.
One can also change the initial values for x(0) and x'(0) and see if this changes the behavior of the system.
Notes: The refine factor has been changeg to 4 in order to produce a smoother simulation. Also do not forget to uncheck the "limit data points" option.
