Spin a brushless DC Motor with Simulink and Speedgoat
Design, test and validate motor control algorithms for electric motors using Simulink® and Speedgoat hardware. The Electric Motor Control Kit enables you to spin a brushless DC motor using field-oriented control, tune parameters on-the-fly, and estimate motor parameters with just a few clicks. The kit includes the software, hardware and documentation needed to control a brushless DC motor using Simulink Real-Time and a Speedgoat real-time target machine.
Rapid control prototyping enables power electronics engineers to test and verify their control designs using real motors and hardware prototypes prior to selecting the final controller hardware. This kit gets you started with rapid control prototyping of electric motors with Simulink and Speedgoat hardware. Learn to deploy and run motor control algorithms in real-time: from scalar control (open-loop) to automatically tuning a field-oriented control algorithm.
The Electric Motor Control kit can be used with a Speedgoat target computer fitted with a Simulink-configurable FPGA. The latter can typically run algorithms with closed-loop rates in the MHz range, can handle signal conditioning up to 250 MHz, and has I/O connectivity including high-speed analog I/O, PWM, quadrature encoder measurement, hall sensor measurement, and many more.
