Electric Vehicle Powered by Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) Motor

About the submission: This submission contains a set of models to show the implementation of electric all-terrain vehicles powered by BLDC motor. The model is built for the student teams participating in the electric BAJA competition where the vehicle is driven by a BLDC motor. The teams can use this example as a reference to build their own vehicle models by changing the parameters and subsystems.

Models

eATV (R2022b)

The model implements a closed-loop electric all-terrain vehicle using a Motor & Drive block. Irrespective of the type of motor, the model can be used for powertrain simulations. The model was built in R2022b version.

Product Requirements

The models are developed in MATLAB R2020b version and use the following MathWorks products:

  1. MATLAB
  2. Simulink
  3. Simscape
  4. Simscape Driveline
  5. Simscape Electrical

Learning Resources

  1. Motor Control: Watch this series to learn about brushless DC motor control. You’ll learn about the inner workings of a BLDC, and six-step commutation (trapezoidal control).

  2. How to Design Motor Controllers Using Simscape Electrical: This video series will show you how you can model BLDC motors, investigate motor characteristics such as back-EMF voltage and torque, and design speed controllers using Simscape Electrical.

  3. Physical Modeling Tutorial: These training materials will help your student competition team get started with modeling, simulating, and analyzing automotive systems.
