Homework Help: Simulink: read parameter from Matlab workspace

  1. Oct 23, 2011 #1
    Beginner's Simulink problem:

    I have made a Simulink model of a motor-reduction gear-conveyor belt system which outputs velocity (v) and acceleration (a) of the conveyor belt. The reduction gear ratio (i) is a value in a Constant block.

    My next task is to make a simple optimization of the gear ratio for maximum acceleration using the Simulink model. The optimization task is supposed to be a .m-file so I was thinking of writing a script that runs the simulation with a set of different gear ratios. To do this I have to import a new value for the gear ratio into the model for each simulation. However I can't find out how to do this. Any help?

    I tried to use google but I did not find any solution simple enough for me to understand...
