Simulation of Mechatronic Systems



hello my name is Frida Coen and I'm a senior technical consultant at MSC software I'm going to discuss how to do streamline product development of mechatronic systems which are systems that include both mechanical components and control system components mechatronic systems are becoming increasingly significant in many industries today such as the automotive and manufacturing industries typical examples include outer focusing cameras engine management systems ABS active suspension control stability control and industrial robots to understand and accurately design a coupled controls a mechanical system we need to unify the different systems into a single virtual model this can be a challenge with increasing number of control systems seen in many products today looking at automotive industry for example a large amount of new innovations comes from electronics is becoming more and more important to simulate the coupled multidisciplinary systems early in the design process to accurately predict behavior and to tune the system parameters traditionally control systems are simulated separately from the mechanical systems which makes it difficult to predict how they affect the mechanics in real life this may lead to high costs for physical testing in order to tune the control parameters we need a unified model to accurately predict system performance through simulation MSE software's Adamek chronic software package provides a singular environment where engineers can easily set up simulate and get a good overview of the complete couple mechatronics system and to tune it as they would with a physical prototype control systems modeling MATLAB Simulink and MSE software zc5 can be imported to an existing Adams model in the Adams environments the user then defines the signals and connects the control systems and mechanical model functionality such as the ability to automatically handle unit conversion of signals adding signal delay and disturbance of signals is included in easily-accessible in the interface we can here see how an engineer investigates the effect of a stability control system for a car the virtual prototype is a combination of a stability control system from ez5 an ABS system from MATLAB Simulink and allows car full vehicle model all combined into a single model in the Adams environment the complete system can either be ran as a CO simulation where Adam solves the mechanical equations and MATLAB or ez5 solves their equation systems the two applications will then communicate at an interval defined by the user or as in this example the complete system can be simulated using the Adam solver for the couple equation system we can clearly see what effect the stability control system has on the vehicle simulating an evasive maneuver when stability control is activated the vehicles yaw rate is reduced as well as the lateral acceleration the vehicle's dynamic behavior in general has changed with this information and by viewing other results from the simulation our engineer cannot use control systems or mechanical model he can do design studies and see how parameters affect the system to meet the design objectives with better accuracy much quicker thanks for watching if you like to learn more about how Adams mechatronics can help you in designing combined control systems and mechanical systems please visit
