Pneumatic Motor

This example shows how a pneumatic motor can be modeled using the Simscape™ language. The motor is specified by lookup table data for motor torque and air flow as a function of motor speed. To look at the Simscape™ code, double-click on the Pneumatic Motor block to open the block dialog, and then click on the View source for Pneumatic Motor hyperlink. In this test harness the dynamometer linearly ramps up the speed, and the resulting torque is recorded. The simulation verifies the nominal power of 15kW at 3100rpm, and no-load speed as 6000rpm.
