This article written by Luca Zamboni, the author of Getting Started with Simulink describes how solvers are used by Simulink to run the simulation. It explains how every solver perform the simulation by advancing one time step and computing the new outputs starting from the previous state(s) of the system until the end of the simulation time. The initial system state must be fully defined.
The appropriate solver for a model can be chosen by defining these characteristics:
- Time step size, which can be fixed or variable
- Presence of continuous states in the system
- Stiffness of the system
