MATLAB Programming for Engineers

MATLAB Programming for Engineers

MATLAB is a platform used to study data sets, develop models of real-world systems, create algorithms, and solve equations. Engineers use MATLAB to develop, design, simulate, and test their models before it can be developed in the real world. In the field of mechanical engineering, MATLAB is used for solving problems related to dynamic and static systems, mechanical vibrations, control systems, statics, and more. This makes MATLAB a fundamental software tool for mechanical engineers. Electrical engineers use MATLAB and Simulink to develop digital control systems for motors, power converters, and battery systems. A multi-domain block diagram environment for modeling plant dynamics, designing control algorithms, and running closed-loop simulations.
