Simulink enables you to specify physical units as attributes on signals at the boundaries of model components. By specifying, controlling, and visualizing signal units, you can ensure the consistency of calculations across the various components of your model. For example, this added degree of consistency checking might be useful if you are integrating many separately developed components into a large, overall system model. To get started with units, see Unit Specification in Simulink Models.
Use a fuel control system example to learn how to update an existing model to use units.
Specify physical units as attributes on signals at the boundaries of model components.
Dynamically update port and signal labels to show any changes made to units.
Check unit consistency between components.
Configure Simulink to convert units between ports when discrepancies that have known mathematical relationships are detected.
Use Model Advisor checks to troubleshoot common issues with unit settings.
