Dear specialist:

     I want to testify the dynamic response of two algorithm ,that is to say ,I have to measure the execution time of them and make a comparision, so are we able to measure it ? I know we can use the CPU load module in the plecs to measure the CPU load .But can we generate the C code in code composer studio to testify its execution time or using plecs?

Irrespective of whether you use Code Composer Studio (CCS) (by generating code into CCS project from PLECS), or PLECS (build and program from PLECS) to program the MCU, you can connect to external mode in PLECS to view real-time signals. 

This video here shows how to connect to external mode.
