Motor control algorithms regulate speed, torque, and other performance characteristics, often for precision positioning. Evaluating control algorithms using simulation is an effective way to determine the suitability of motor controller designs and reduce the time and cost of algorithm development before committing to expensive hardware testing.
An efficient workflow for motor control algorithm development involves:
