This work presents an efficient parallel simulation method, namely the Discrete Time Model Segmentation Approach (DTMSA) that could be applied to simulate a complex system using simple SIMULINK block diagram models. In this approach, a complex system, like motor drives, can be decoupled into many smaller subsystems. Each subsystem is then formulated with a smaller matrix and simulated with in the same program. This technique reduces the memory requirements and computation time. In addition, this approach is easily implementable on parallel computers and is structured to take full advantage of parallel processing. This parallel simulation method allows significant speed improvement compared to normal sequential simulation.
