Ideal to Electrical Implementation: SaberRD & JMAG-RT Case Study in a Motor Drive System

Kurt Mueller, Alan Courtay

Motor-drive systems play an increasingly important role in today’s “more electric” society. The ability to rapidly develop and test control strategies coupled with ideal motor behavior is only the starting point. The real value of simulation to the motor-drive process is being able to accurately model and simulate the physical phenomena of interest that affect key aspects of the final product: controllability, stability, efficiency, and robustness. In this presentation we will explore a sample motor drive system described in Synopsys’ SaberRD tool coupled with JMAG-RT. We will explore the design space and understand the interplay of motor and electrical dynamics from ideal control system to a detailed electrical level highlighting the system dynamics revealed through increasingly more physical modeling of the motor-drive.
