Modeling, Simulation and Dynamics Analysis Issues of Electric Motor, for Mechatronics Applications, Using Different Approaches and Verification by MATLAB/Simulink (I)

By Ahmad A. Mahfouz Mohammed M. K. Farhan A. Salem

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijisa.2013.05.06, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2013

The accurate control of motion is a fundamental concern in mechatronics applications, where placing an object in the exact desired location with the exact possible amount of force and torque at the correct exact time is essential for efficient system operation. An accurate modeling, simulation and dynamics analysis of actuators for mechatronics motion control applications is of big concern. The ultimate goal of this paper addresses different approaches used to derive mathematical models, building corresponding simulink models and dynamic analysis of the basic open loop electric DC motor system, used in mechatronics motion control applications, particularly, to design, construct and control of a mechatronics robot arm with single degree of freedom, and verification by MATLAB/Simulink. To simplify and accelerate the process of DC motors sizing, selection, dynamic analysis and evaluation for different motion applications, different mathematical models in terms of output position, speed, current, acceleration and torque, as well as corresponding simulink models, supporting MATLAB m.file and general function block models are to be introduced. The introduced models were verified using MATLAB/ Simulink. These models are intended for research purposes as well as for the application in educational process.

Mechatronics Design of a Mobile Robot System

By Ahmad A. Mahfouz Ayman A. Aly Farhan A. Salem

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijisa.2013.03.03, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2013

Mobile robot motion control is simplified to a DC motor motion control that may include gear system. The simplest and widespread approach to control the mobile robot motion is the differential drive style, it consists of two in-lines with each a DC motor. Both DC motors are independently powered so the desired movements will rely on how these two DC motors are commanded. Thedevelop design, model and control of Mechatronics mobile robotic system is presented in this paper. The developed robotic system is intended for research purposes as well as for educational process. The model of proposed mobile robot was created and verified using MATLAB-Simulink software.
