Matlab Simulink Embedded Code Generation

Drive design workflow

The drive design follows a specific model-based design workflow:

1. Design: design of the drive with respect to specifications.

2. Simulation: simulation models are built for the designed drive and its control.

3. Code Generation: an embedded code is automatically generated from simulation model. 4. Test and validation on target

5. Compliance verification : if the design features do not meet the specifications, issues are addressed by checking and updating the simulation model and/or the design. The workflow steps will be repeated until the design becomes compliant with the specifications.

6. Delivery

The components lever to efficiency

The control strategy is based on a sensorless six-step control. The driver can handle high temperature conditions (up to 175 °C) and it is designed for a permanent application. The components involved in the design are restrained to customers approved components. The microcontroller requires only 3.3 V power supply with a very low power consumption (within 250 mW) and it has various communication modes: I2C, SPI, USB and USART/UART. The control part is compact and can fit in 35 mm x 100 mm area.
