SM Velocity Control

This example shows how to control the rotor angular velocity in a synchronous machine (SM) based electrical-traction drive. A high-voltage battery feeds the SM through a controlled three-phase converter for the stator windings and a controlled four quadrant chopper for the rotor winding. An ideal torque source provides the load. The Control subsystem includes a multi-rate PI-based cascade control structure which has an outer angular-velocity-control loop and three inner current-control loops. The task scheduling in the Control subsystem is implemented as a Stateflow® state machine. The Visualization subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
