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"!

Creating Controlled Sources in the SystemVision Design environment

Using Function Generators in the SystemVision Design Environment

Ideal “sources” are essential components on every simulation schematic. They represent the external stimulus and operating conditions for the circuit or system under test. SystemVision Cloud provides a basic set of voltage and current sources (i.e. constant, pulse, sine, etc.) that are expected in all circuit simulators. But, we also provide much more versatile “function generators” that operate like the lab instruments for which they are named. The user can select the function type and all its relevant parameters, while the function generator is in-place in the circuit.

Got Current Spikes? Soft-Saturation Inductors to the Rescue!

Design requirements often focus on steady-state performance and operating conditions. Component sizing and ratings selection, if based solely on meeting these objectives, can lead to unexpected and sometimes catastrophic results. Parts may be most severely stressed during transients that occur infrequently, perhaps only once during the initial start-up!

Welcome to SystemVision Cloud! And welcome to the most powerful analog, mixed-signal, and multi-discipline simulation technology on the planet.

Our goal is to transform the way that you experience system design.

Now you can explore, design, and share schematics—seamlessly mixing control system blocks, analog and digital circuits, sensors, and actuators.

It's live! (Interacting With Shared Schematics and Waveforms)

Did you know that using systemvision.com allows you to embed a live design and/or a waveform viewer in online documents?  This is similar to embedding a YouTube video in an online document -- the content is live and can be viewed and manipulated in place.

Solving the Problems with Modeling Fuel Cells

Performing a web search for "fuel cell model" returns an encouraging number of hits, but further investigation often results in models that aren't that useful. The model presented here is a free, open, online execution model written in VHDL-AMS. The model can be used to fit available polarization curves, so that a commercial fuel cell can be modeled without knowing the details of how it is constructed. Finally, the model can be used in arbitrary SystemVision circuit schematics, available free and online on www.SystemVision.com.

Comprehensive Power System Modeling and Simulation

SystemVision Cloud provides the perfect collaboration environment for Power System Engineers, whether they work on Generation, Transmission or Distribution Systems, or if they design Power Converters or complex end-user Load Systems. On-line access, with nothing to install or license, allows many participants to effectively work together on a “virtual grid” model. The participants may include component and sub-system application engineers, consultants, industry experts and educators, as well as utility system planning and development engineers.
