Parameterizing and Verifying a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Model

Brad Hieb, MathWorks

A fast and accurate motor model is essential for developing motor controls using Model-Based Design. This presentation describes a process through which such a control-oriented model is developed and verified against experimental data through a series of four physical tests. Specific topics covered include the physical effects that must be captured in the model versus those that can be neglected and test procedures used to identify the value for each of the critical model parameters.
