MathWorks Motor Control Blockset for Simulink

Friday, 04 September, 2020 | Supplied by: MathWorks Australia

MathWorks has introduced Motor Control Blockset, an add-on product for Simulink for designing and implementing motor control algorithms. Now, motor control engineers can use reference examples and Simulink blocks for developing field-oriented control algorithms to spin brushless motors. The blockset extends the set of Simulink products for motor control design, enabling engineers to test algorithms with each design change; generate fast and compact ANSI/ISO C code; and use simulation to validate software, reducing certification testing cycles.

Instead of a process where handwritten code is not verified until actual motor testing, engineers can use simulation and code generation to catch errors earlier and speed up their motor control development projects.

MathWorks is working with motor control hardware providers to develop reference examples that support their motor control kits, starting with several Texas Instruments kits based on their C2000 real-time microcontrollers. Engineers using these kits can automatically estimate motor parameters, generate application code and spin motors in minutes. Additionally, Motor Control Blockset can be used with Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat real-time target machines for rapid control prototyping, including field-oriented control autotuning.
