  • Construct plant and control models using transfer function, state-space, or zero-pole-gain
  • Analyze system performance with tools such as step response, pole-zero maps, and Bode plots
  • Simulate linear, nonlinear, and discrete systems with a wide range of solvers
  • Deploy dynamic systems to real-time hardware using built-in functions and LabVIEW Real-Time Module

With the NI LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation Module, you can analyze open-loop model behavior, design closed-loop controllers, simulate online and offline systems, and conduct physical implementations. 



Create models from first principles using transfer function, state-space, or zero-pole-gain representation. With time and frequency analysis tools, such as time step response or Bode plot, you can interactively analyze open- and closed-loop behavior. Use built-in tools for both multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) and single input, single output (SISO) systems and take advantage of simulation capabilities to verify linear and nonlinear system dynamics. You can also use built-in tools to convert your models developed in The MathWorks, Inc. Simulink® software to work with LabVIEW.

In addition, you can expand LabVIEW Control Design and Simulation usability with other NI software tools. For example, you can combine it with the LabVIEW System Identification Toolkit to find empirical models from real plant stimulus-response information. You also can use it with the LabVIEW Statechart Module for event-based control design or event-driven simulation. And take advantage of the LabVIEW MathScript RT Module to implement .m syntax-based simulation. Once the algorithm is designed, you can easily deploy dynamic systems to real-time hardware targets without the need to generate code by using the LabVIEW Real-Time Module for rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop applications.
