Process Control with COMSOL Multiphysics LiveLink and Simulink

Webinar about Process control with COMSOL Multiphysics LiveLink and Simulink

1 hour | Free | Online | Arpad Forberger


LiveLink for Simulink is a software tool that acts as a bridge between two powerful engineering and simulation software programs: COMSOL Multiphysics and Simulink.

Engineers worldwide use LiveLink™ with Simulink® to enhance their modeling and simulation capabilities and streamline their engineering workflows. 

Here’s what it allows you to do: 

Cosimulation: LiveLink for Simulink enables COMSOL Multiphysics and Simulink to combine seamlessly.  

Exporting Models: LiveLink for Simulink lets you take a complex COMSOL Multiphysics model and simplify it into a reduced-order state-space representation.

During this webinar

Dr. Arpad Forberger will dive deep into state space export and PID control with mixing different species in process control. 

One of the possible solutions to simplify a FEM model into a lower-order system without losing its characteristic behaviour is to use a state-space model.

A PID controller is an instrument used in industrial control applications to regulate temperature, flow, pressure, speed, and other process variables. PID (proportional integral derivative) controllers use a control loop feedback mechanism to control process variables and are the most accurate and stable controllers.


  • What is COMSOL Multiphysics and Simulink
  • Major new updates of Livelink for Simulink
  • Cosimulation
  • Demo of a FEM with PID control
  • Summary
  • Q&A

This webinar is for you if: 

  • You are a process engineer, competence lead, or team leader
  • You are looking for a high fidelity physical model in your control system
  • You are  interested in learning about the co-simulation capabilities of COMSOL Multiphysics 

By the end of this webinar you will have a basic understanding of the workflow of cosimulation through a live demo. The FEM and Simulink implementation will be presented.

Recommended experiences:

  • experience with COMSOL Multiphysics is not required, but some experience in the field of simulation is recommended.
