Mechatronic Simulation with SimElectronics

Register to watch video

Steve Miller, MathWorks

In this webinar we will demonstrate how to model and simulate mechatronic systems using SimElectronics. We will show you how to define your mechatronic system using actuator, sensor, and semiconductor models.  You will be able to simulate systems such as actuation systems, analog circuits, and hybrid electric vehicles.

This webinar will include demonstrations and explanations to show you how to:
• Model and parameterize motor models
• Include thermal effects
• Automatically tune model and controller parameters
• Define custom electronic components
• Run simulations in real-time for HIL testing

Mechatronic systems include a wide range of components, including motors, op-amps, and shaft encoders.  Simulating these components together with mechanical and control systems is critical to optimizing system performance.  To ensure that testing is efficient, SimElectronics offers a number of ways to easily balance the tradeoff of model fidelity and simulation speed.  Each of these concepts is covered in this presentation.
