This paper proposes a new MATLAB built-in function, mathematical and simulink models, all to be simultaneously simple, user–friendly and to be used to face the two top challenges in developing mechatronic motion control systems, particularly, the early identifying system level problems and ensuring that all design requirements are met, as well as, to simplify and accelerate Mechatronics motion control design process including; performance analysis and verification of a given electric DC system, proper controller selection and verification for desired output speed or angle. The proposed models and function are intended for research purposes, application in educational process, and to be used by the mechatronics students and engineers for selection, design and verification purposes.
