Specify the step size used by the selected fixed-step solver.
auto (the default) in this field
causes Simulink® to choose the step size.
If the model specifies one or more periodic sample times, Simulink chooses a step size equal to the greatest common divisor of the specified sample times. This step size, known as the fundamental sample time of the model, ensures that the solver will take a step at every sample time defined by the model.
If the model does not define any periodic sample times, Simulink chooses a step size that divides the total simulation time into 50 equal steps.
If the model specifies no periodic rates and the stop time is
Inf, Simulink uses 0.2 as the step size. Otherwise, it sets the
fixed-step size to
For Sine and Signal Generator
source blocks, if the stop time is
Simulink calculates the step size using this heuristic:Otherwise, the step size is:
where is the maximum frequency (Hz) of these blocks in the model.
This parameter is enabled only if the Periodic sample
