The SCILAB Xcos model is designed to simulate the electron trajectories and intensity of planar undulator radiation using a numerical approach. The SCILAB 6.1.1 software was used to design the present model, which was designed to simulate the on-axis undulator radiation at various harmonics. A comparison of the results from this model with those obtained using the analytical method with the Bessel function is also given in this paper. The designed model can be modified for the numerical computation of the trajectories of the innovative and novel undulator schemes.
