Mechatronics Engineers … Start Your Motors!

The SystemVision Cloud Team is happy to announce that we’re adding many models to support motor and control systems development. We’ve recently added a new PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine) model, and updated our Induction Motor model. We will be adding Stepper and SRM (Switched Reluctance Motor) models in the very near future. Continuous control algorithm blocks that support field oriented control (FOC), such as Clarke and Park transforms, have also been added. Some of these are shown in the design example below.

SystemVision Cloud for Multi-Discipline Simulation

As director of the original SystemVision multi-discipline environment, I’m excited to introduce the next generation of this powerful technology.  This brief video explains why SystemVision Cloud should be the tool of choice for online circuit & system simulation.

Sensor Modeling and Signal Conditioning Circuit Design for Mechatronic Systems

SystemVision Cloud provides a great design platform for sensor signal conditioning circuits, as well as for verifying sensor systems in the context of their external applications. A key feature SystemVision that makes this possible is the ability to create a “just right” model of the sensor itself. This can be a detailed physics-based model that captures both the internal behavior and the electrical interface characteristics of the sensor, to accurately represent its interaction with the signal conditioning circuit.

Automotive Start-Stop … Keep the lights ON!

You’ve probably noticed when you start your car that some of the optional electronics turn off, such as the radio and some LED lighting circuits. That’s because the high current draw of the starter motor pulls the system voltage far below the normal 12+ volt operating level. Critical circuits are designed to operate at these low voltages … if the ignition circuit didn’t work, you would be cranking for a very long time! But many functions are not designed for that low-voltage condition.

FIRST Robotics (FRC) Motor Modeling

In the world of the FIRST Robotics Competition, the CIM motor is the trusted workhorse. These motors have lots of power and they can take a ton of abuse and keep on running.  Most FRC robots use CIM motors for any and all heavy-lifting jobs, including primary drive motors and any game tools that need a lot of torque or power. Read this blog to learn how to model a CIM motor using SystemVision Cloud.

Out of the Box and Into the Cloud, for Component Suppliers!

You've poured brilliant engineering ideas and tremendous design effort into your products, so they can have valuable features that are useful in broad applications. Yet these are not always well understood by your customers. Your work isn’t finished until the customer "gets it"!
