Check that bounds on pole locations are satisfied during simulation
This block is same as the PoleZero Plot block except for different default parameter settings in the Bounds tab.
Check that approximate secondorder bounds on the pole locations of a linear system, computed from a nonlinear Simulink model, are satisfied during simulation.
The Simulink model can be continuoustime, discretetime or multirate and can have time delays. Because you can specify only one linearization input/output pair in this block, the linear system is SingleInput SingleOutput (SISO).
During simulation, the software linearizes the portion of the model between specified linearization inputs and outputs, computes the poles and zeros, and checks that the poles satisfy the specified bounds:
If all bounds are satisfied, the block does nothing.
If a bound is not satisfied, the block asserts, and a warning message appears at the MATLAB^{®} prompt. You can also specify that the block:
Evaluate a MATLAB expression.
Stop the simulation and bring that block into focus.
During simulation, the block can also output a logical assertion signal:
If all bounds are satisfied, the signal is true (1).
If a bound is not satisfied, the signal is false (0).
You can add multiple Check PoleZero Characteristics blocks in your model to check approximate secondorder bounds on various portions of the model.
You can also plot the poles and zeros on a polezero map and graphically verify that the poles satisfy the bounds.
This block and the other Model Verification blocks test that the linearized behavior of a nonlinear Simulink model is within specified bounds during simulation.
When a model does not violate any bound, you can disable the block by clearing the assertion option. If you modify the model, you can reenable assertion to ensure that your changes do not cause the model to violate a bound.
When a model violates any bound, you can use Simulink Design Optimization™ software to optimize the linear system to meet the specified requirements in this block.
You can save the linear system as a variable in the MATLAB workspace.
The block does not support code generation and can be used only in Normal simulation mode.
The following table summarizes the PoleZero Plot block parameters, accessible via the block parameter dialog box. For more information, see Parameters in the PoleZero Plot block reference page.
