Modeling a PV Solar Power System using Simulink

The photovoltaic system model is simulated in Simulink to analyze the dynamics of inverters in the study of MPP tracking (MPPT) algorithms. A photovoltaic system directly converts solar irradiance into electrical energy.  This video is provided by Sun Innovative.

Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) | Wind Turbine Pitch Angle Control Using Simulink

A two-mass wind turbine is modeled in Simulink and used to provide mechanical torque/input to a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator. Three-phase power generated from this system, changing wind velocity is presented in this simulation, also.  This video is provided by Sun Innovative.

Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE) - PWM Techniques | MATLAB and Simulink Simulation

Selective Harmonic Elimination (SHE) method is used to reduce the quantity of Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) in an inverter system. A three phase voltage source inverter converts DC electricity into AC electricity, which is fed to the load (RL).  This video is provided by Sun Innovative.

Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) | Solar MPPT Boost Converter | Using Simulink

Fuzzy logic controller based maximum power point tracking is modeled for a PV system. Solar Photovoltaic (PV) exploitation is a significant renewable energy source. FLC-based MPPT can regulate the PV operating voltage and seek for the maximum power that the PV panel can produce.  This video is provided by Sun Innovative.

Control of a 2-way solenoid valve in MATLAB, Simulink and Simscape

This example shows the use of a 2-way electrically actuated valve in a closed-loop circuit together with a double-acting hydraulic cylinder. Different variants are presented based on the required level of fidelity.

Control of a Robot Arm in MATLAB, Simulink and Simscape

The mechanical model of the robot arm is imported from CAD via Simscape Multibody. Electrical actuation is modelled with Simscape Electrical. Cascade PIDs are tuned simultaneously with Simulink Control Design.
