Estimating Parameters of a DC Motor

Steve Miller, MathWorks

Optimization algorithms are used to find realistic parameter values for a DC motor model in Simscape Electronics™. Using Simulink Design Optimization™, parameter values of the motor model are modified until the results of the simulation match measured data. Multiple parameters are tuned simultaneously. To ensure rapid convergence of the optimization problem, the sensitivity of the simulation to the parameter values is calculated.
