Modeling a Mechatronic System

Steve Miller, MathWorks

Simscape Electronics™ is used to model a mechatronic actuation system. The model is created by assembling a physical network of components, including a PWM driver, H-bridge circuit, and a DC Motor. The simulation results are evaluated in the Simscape Results Explorer. After testing the design on a simple mechanical load consisting of a gear box and a lead screw, it is connected to a three-dimensional mechanical model created in Simscape Multibody™.
