Iron Loss Dynamics within PMSMs

Schematic Editor Alignment Assistant

SCADA Library Support

Manage all your SCADA model interfaces in one place

paragraph

 

  • Make dedicated widgets for your frequently used components
  • Match widgets to selected components by customizing them using component property values
  • Add them to your User Widget Library and use them across all your panels
  • Widget updates will automatically propagate to all your panels

 

 

Modbus Client Support on HIL

Modbus TCP now fully supported at the model level

paragraph

 

  • HIL devices can now act as Modbus TCP clients
  • Define Modbus client behavior in Schematic Editor and it will operate autonomously during simulation runtime
  • Simpler, better integrated alternative to Python API and HIL SCADA implementation
  • Improved Modbus communication speed and better integration with the rest of the model

Iron Loss Dynamics within PMSMs

Include iron losses in your simulations with PMSM

paragraph

  • Capture the internal dynamics of the PMSM with iron losses
  • Change iron loss values in real-time based on your calculations
  • PMSM with iron losses example model available:
    • Look-up table based approach for calculating hysteresis and eddy current losses
    • Machine temperature calculation
  • Currently available for the PMSM with Salient rotor – Spatial harmonics type

 

Schematic Editor Alignment Assistant
