Switching between acausal and causal modeling
Block-oriented modeling requires elements to have defined inputs and outputs. The connection between them has a specific direction, which means that the flow of information has only one defined direction. This modeling approach is especially suited for simulations of controller layouts.
In SimulationX, controller layouts are modeled for signal-flow simulations (causal) and can be connected with acausal physical models at the click of a button. Apart from that, you can use interfaces to import controller layouts from MATLAB/Simulink® into a SimulationX model or run it in a co-simulation setup.
