Model-Based Design of Control Systems: Simulate and Test Before Committing to Hardware

By Doug Jones and Brian McKay, MathWorks

Builders of complex equipment are driven to provide better performance while meeting tight deadlines and keeping costs down. One way to improve performance and lower costs is by improving motors and motor control systems. However, the demand for better performance and accuracy of motor control systems is growing rapidly and reaching the point where traditional design and verification methodologies are falling short. By using Model-Based Design, engineers can find errors earlier in the design process and create higher-performing motor control systems.
