your simulations. Assume the same schedule and sizes of meals as in Q.4. Show clearly how

you are changing the model and what Simulink block you are using to simulate the insulin

pump.

Suppose this first insulin pump is capable of delivering a constant infusion of insulin over 24

hours. Determine the insulin infusion rate (in mU h-1) required to reduce blood glucose

concentration in D1 to approximately the same level as that in N by the end of 24 hours (refer

to your simulations results in Q.4. The Subject N does not use any insulin pump!).

Plot the trajectories of the meals and blood glucose and insulin of D1 (i.e., 3 subplots as in

Q.4 but only has D1 simulated results).

Calculate the standard deviation of blood glucose of D1 over the 24-hour duration. How large

is the standard deviation of blood glucose in this situation compared to the corresponding

standard deviation of blood glucose in D1 that you obtained in Q.4 (report as %)?
