This paper presents an in-house MATLAB® GUI tool that can be used to configure the plant; select the controller; automatically generate an integrated model with the plant and controller; and simulate the resulting model. The plant model configuration information is passed on to Dymola® (the simulation environment) using the available communication (COM or DDE) to generate the plant model S-function. This tool includes post processing capabilities such as plotting the simulation results and custom plotting of metrics that are generated postsimulation.
