Stop Simulation

Stop simulation when input is nonzero

Library

Sinks

Description

The Stop Simulation block stops the simulation when the input is nonzero. The simulation completes the current time step before terminating. If the block input is a vector, any nonzero vector element causes the simulation to stop.

When you use the Stop Simulation block in a For Iterator subsystem, the stop action occurs after execution of all the iterations in the subsystem during a time step. The stop action does not interrupt execution until the start of the next time step.

You cannot use the Stop Simulation block to pause the simulation. To create a block that pauses the simulation, see Pause Simulation Using Assertion Blocks in the Simulink® documentation.

Data Type Support

The Stop Simulation block accepts real signals of type double or Boolean. For more information, see Data Types Supported by Simulink in the Simulink documentation.

Examples

Usage with the Relational Operator Block

You can use the Stop Simulation block with the Relational Operator block to control when a simulation stops. For example, the following model stops simulation when the simulation time reaches 10.

Usage with the Integrator Block

You can use the Stop Simulation block with the Integrator block to control when a simulation stops. For example, the sldemo_absbrake model stops simulation when the saturation port of the Integrator block outputs a value of 1 or –1.

For more information, see the model description.
