% Unable to generate C Code using MATLAB Coder for simplified example function shown below. Error description states, "This assignment
% writes a 'double' value into a 'struct' type. Code generation does not support changing types through assignment. Check preceding

See the article "Name the C Structure Type to Use With a Global Structure Variable" in the MATLAB help documentation. You need to register the struct type with coder and map struct variables to registered types.

The following codegen command compiles without errors for the provided example.
% codegen t -globals {'SD', struct('a', double(0), 'b', double(0))}
function r = t
global SD;
SD.a = 0.1;
SD.b = 0.2;
SD.a = SD.b;
r = SD.a;
