This event has been turned into an Online Meeting (WebEx) due to evolving public health risks related to coronavirus. Below you may find the adjusted agenda.
Further information on how to access the online meeting will be provided directly by your host via email.
Digital controllers are increasingly used in mechatronics applications and offer many advantages over analog control, including flexibility and adaptability. With digital control, controllers can be changed using a software update. Additionally, digital control allows for implementation of more advanced control algorithms.
These factors, together with decreasing cost of microcontrollers and Field-Programmable-Gate-Arrays (FPGAs), are contributing to the increased adoption of digital control for mechatronic systems. This digital transformation is not without challenges: a model-based approach is necessary to deal with the increased complexity of the software and controller design.
Using a DC/DC converter this seminar presents new features and workflows on how Simulink® and Simscape Electrical™ are used to develop, simulate, and implement a controller that deals with input variations and load changes achieving fast and stable response.
