This set of Tricky MATLAB Questions and Answers focuses on “Simulation – 2”.
1. What does the following toolbox do?
Simulink Control Design
a) Plots bode plots
b) Verifies circuit modelling
c) Calculates z transform
d) Calculates Fourier transform
Explanation: The above toolbox is used for the analysis of the system and check the control system parameters which gives an insight into the nature of working and stability of the system that has been modelled.
Explanation: The above block is configured to view the final value of a signal after simulation. It helps to identify the final value but only up to the time for which the model is getting simulated.
Explanation: The Bias block is used to add a bias signal to any signal. This essentially means adding a DC value to the input i.e. if the input signal is a sinusoid, it’ll start from the given Bias or D.C. value at t=0.
4. What does the following block do?
a) Add a delay to the signal in frequency domain
b) Advance the signal in frequency domain
c) Shifts the signal in frequency domain
d) Gives an output as the function of the input
Explanation: The above mathfunction takes an input and ends up giving an output according to the given input and the user-chosen function. It does not multiply the input with function so it really isn’t doing anything mentioned in the rest of the options.
Explanation: The s domain is referred to the Laplacian domain. The z-domain has a separate block. Hence, only laplacian domain is correct.
6. Simulink allows the simulation of systems using block diagrams.
Explanation: The Simulink allows the user to set up blocks which represent functions and can be used to model a system. Hence, the above statement is true.
Explanation: The above block gives a 1 if the input is positive and a -1 if the input is negative.
8. What are the transistors present in Simulink?
c) No transistor
d) User defined
Explanation: The datasheet of any transistor can be specified in the transistor model. Hence, only option User defined is correct.
Explanation: This block samples a sinusoidal signal and can generate multiple sinusoidal signals by giving vector inputs as parameters to the block.
Explanation: This is a block present in MATLAB and can be used to model a constant signal. The value of the constant is user defined.
Explanation: This block uses the minimum no. of bits required for a counter operation. It doesn’t initialize bits according to the number of bits of the system so it saves a bit of memory.
Explanation: The reference power for this block is pre-defined in MATLAB. To convert the voltage to dB, the reference power is 1W but to convert it to dBm, the reference power is 1mW.
Explanation: This block is not restricted to logical systems. It can be used for any system, which is being modelled in MATLAB, and check the simulation results at instants where the user feels it needs to be checked.
Explanation: Since the ramp function is plotted in the y-axis, it is seen that the value of the y axis is 0.
15. What is the function of this block?
a) Defining only continuous systems
b) Defining only discrete systems
c) Defining only digital systems
d) Defining both continuous and discrete systems
Explanation: This block allows us to model both continuous and discrete time systems for simulation.
