The Virtual Engines simulation and the Simulink model communicate directly on a time step basis allowing:
The co-simulation process has been designed to allow maximum flexibility. The Simulink environment can be used for a variety of purposes including:
Coupling of the Virtual Engines and Simulink environments is supported through the Virtual Engines Design interface. Sensors are defined within the engine model that can be connected as inputs to the Simulink workspace. Actuators are defined in a similar manner to Sensors and can be connected as outputs from the Simulink model.
During co-simulation, the full functionality of the Simulink workspace and debugger are available to troubleshoot model design and monitor simulation progress.
