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. In this test harness a dynamometer linearly ramps up the speed, and the required torque is recorded. The simulation verifies the nominal power of 15kW at 3100rpm, and no-load speed as 6000rpm.
