Subject: change variable value while script is running
I am controlling a pilot plant of boiler through Matlab using modbus RTU (serial communication).
I am running my control program (in editor) for 45 mins through a loop but I am facing two problems :
1] I can't change any variable value while running program which is deadly needed.
2] I am unable to see real time data in workspace while running script.
It updates all variables after finishing execution time. For my application I want data to appear for every iteration.
I couldn't solve them so I switched to simulink but that was even more frustrating.
In simulink I used user defined blocks (embedded Matlab function) to generate modbus address PDU which does not support to in-built matlab functions (like dec2hex).
Will please someone let me know in simulink, serial send/receive support which data format?(ASCII/HEX/DEC)
