Modeling the United States Economy
Economists and policymakers are concerned with understanding the dynamics of economies, especially during periods of significant macroeconomic shocks. Although numerous approaches are possible, we will develop a small macroeconomic model in the style of Smets and Wouters.
Perform basic peak analysis. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I find peaks in my signal? How do I measure distance between peaks? How do I measure the amplitude of peaks of a signal which is affected by a trend? How do I find peaks in a noisy signal? How do I find local minima?
Measuring Signal Similarities
Measure signal similarities. It will help you answer questions such as: How do I compare signals with different lengths or different sampling rates? How do I find if there is a signal or just noise in a measurement? Are two signals related? How to measure a delay between two signals (and how do I align them)? How do I compare the frequency content of two signals?
Use Simulink® to model a toy quadcopter, based on the Parrot (R) series of mini-drones, to help estimate the snow levels on the MathWorks Apple Hill campus roof.
Wind Farm (IG)
Phasor simulation of a 9-MW wind farm using Induction Generators (IG) driven by variable-pitch wind turbines.
Modeling a Fault-Tolerant Fuel Control System
Combine Stateflow® with Simulink® to efficiently model hybrid systems. This type of modeling is particularly useful for systems that have numerous possible operational modes based on
Introduction to MIMO Systems
Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems, which use multiple antennas at the transmitter and receiver ends of a wireless communication system. MIMO systems are increasingly

Three-dimensional plots typically display a surface defined by a function in two variables, z = f(x,y) .
Manipulating Multidimensional Arrays
Work with arrays having more than two dimensions. Multidimensional arrays can be numeric, character, cell, or structure arrays.
Anti-Windup Control Using a PID Controller
Use anti-windup schemes to prevent integration wind-up in PID controllers when the actuators are saturated. We use the PID Controller block in Simulink® which features two built-in
To create two-dimensional line plots, use the plot function. For example, plot the value of the sine function from 0 to 2\pi :
