A peritoneal dialysis cycler model was developed to be used by biomedical device manufacturers in order to aid them in the system development, system level requirement writing, and FDA device certification process. This generic model can be used as a plug and play model for companies to incorporate a specific dialysis pump that is commercially available and quickly integrate it into their system. The Simulink model was used to simulate the system behavior and analyze multi domain dynamic systems data. A mathematical representation of the physical system was derived using fluid dynamic equations. The mathematical equations were then translated into Simulink blocks for the computer environment to understand. A proportional integral derivative controller was designed and integrated into the system in order to compensate the flow rate for any difference between the flow set point and the actual flow. System monitors were developed to protect patients from hazardous conditions.
