Output times

Description

Specify times at which Simulink® software should generate output in addition to, or instead of, the times of the simulation steps taken by the solver used to simulate the model.

Category: Data Import/Export

Settings

Default: []

  • Enter a matrix containing the times at which Simulink software should generate output in addition to, or instead of, the simulation steps taken by the solver.

  • If the value of Output options is Produce additional output, for the default value [], Simulink generates no additional data points.

  • If the value of Output options is Produce specified output only, for the default value [] Simulink generates no data points.

Tips

  • The Produce additional output option generates output at the specified times, as well as at the regular simulation steps.

  • The Produce specified output only option generates output at the specified times.

  • Discrete models define outputs only at major time steps. Therefore, Simulink software logs output for discrete models only at major time steps. If the Output times field specifies other times, Simulink displays a warning at the MATLAB® command line.

  • For additional information on how Simulink software calculates outputs for the Output options Produce specified output only and Produce additional output options, see Samples to Export for Variable-Step Solvers.

Dependency

This parameter is enabled only if the value of Output options is Produce additional output or Produce specified output only.
