Do you need to model physical systems to support your development process? Do you compromise on design choices because you lack the data, tools, or the time to model them adequately? During this presentation, you will learn how Simscape™ helps engineers build models that are fit for purpose, supporting both early design decisions and subsequent integration and system test.
You will learn how Simscape can be used to model physical systems, starting with an overview of off-the-shelf Simscape libraries and building up to how you can create your own custom component models. The presentation is illustrated using the example of modelling electric drives for vehicle and robotic applications, including thermal and cooling aspects. Key themes include:
Solutions to these themes exploit the tight integration between Simscape and MATLAB® and Simulink®, with MATLAB providing the numerical platform to manage your data and Simulink providing seamless integration with your control algorithms and path to real-time deployment.
