This tutorial shows how to model a dynamic system using Simulink® software.
The completed model is a house heating system that includes a heater
(plant), thermostat (controller), and room (environment). Open the Simulink model
see the model you will build.
To model, you perform three major steps:
Define a House Heating System — Define requirements and mathematical equations. Collect data for model parameters and validating the simulation results.
Model a House Heating System — Model the top-level structure and individual components. Organize your model into a hierarchical structure that corresponds to the components of the system.
Integrate a House Heating Model — Connect model components, add realistic input, and simulate behavior over time to verify the expected result.
