Nonlinear Operators

Blocks that simulate discontinuities, such as saturation or dead zone, for physical signals

Simscape Blocks

PS AbsOutput absolute value of input physical signal
PS CeilOutput the smallest integer larger than or equal to input physical signal
PS Dead ZoneProvide region of zero output for physical signals
PS FixRound input physical signal toward zero
PS FloorOutput the largest integer smaller than or equal to input physical signal
PS MaxOutput maximum of two input physical signals
PS MinOutput minimum of two input physical signals
PS RoundRound input physical signal toward nearest integer
PS SaturationLimit range of physical signal
PS SignOutput sign of input physical signal
PS SwitchSingle-pole double-throw switch controlled by external physical signal

Physical Signal Unit Propagation

Physical signal blocks propagate units.

Upgrading Models with Legacy Physical Signal Blocks

Prior to R2019a, physical signal blocks did not propagate units.
