Hi, there! I am trying to incorporate a thermal model of electric motor into the full vehicle model. The thermal model takes losses in crucial components of EM as inputs and outputs temperatures in these crucial components. The outputs(temperatures) are then fed to a lookup table downstream containing losses at different temperatures and these losses are then fed back to the thermal model upstream. I am quite new to simulink and wonder how I can set some initial temperatures to the look-up table for the 1st simulation time step to kick it off?
Here is a schematic of the model I spoke of:
Incidentally, I would appreciate it if some simulink expert can propose some essential simulink tutorial for me so that I'll be able to get the hang of this simulation tool in the shortest time possible. I am fairly acquainted with Matlab as a programming language and data analysis tool, but the sheer volume of simulink documentation is daunting. Thanks in advance for your help!
