Modeling a DC Motor

Steve Miller, MathWorks

Simscape™ is used to model a DC motor. The model is created by assembling a physical network of Simscape components, including electrical resistors, shaft inertias, and friction. The simulation results are evaluated in the Simscape Results Explorer. The physical connections used in the model make it easy to understand, modify, and maintain, and make it possible to quickly build up models spanning multiple physical domains.
