NI Electric Motor Simulation Toolkit High-Performance Models for Hardware-in-the-Loop Test

  • PMSM, ACIM, SRM, and power inverter models for high-performance simulation
  • High-fidelity simulations with support for user-defined parameter lookup tables or JMAG-RT models
  • Open software for full flexibility and customization
  • LabVIEW project templates to build a software-only simulation and hardware-in-the-loop application
  • Direct integration with NI VeriStand for configuration-based real-time test
  • Models for desktop simulation, LabVIEW Real-Time simulation, and FPGA-based simulation
The NI Electric Motor Simulation Toolkit provides the modeling elements to develop both desktop and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations of electric motor systems. The toolkit features a LabVIEW project template for electric simulation, control, and HIL as well as NI VeriStand add-ons for the various motor types. You can execute the models on a host computer for software-only simulation, NI real-time targets for traditional HIL, or NI FPGA targets for high-speed HIL.

The toolkit contains switched reluctance motor (SRM), AC induction motor (ACIM) and permanent magnet synchronous machine (PMSM) models in a simple linear approximation or in higher fidelity models. The highest fidelity versions integrate models from JSOL's JMAG-RT toolchain. With the lookup-table based models, both the open API version and the JMAG-RT models, you can accurately simulate highly nonlinear behavior such as cogging torque and magnetic saturation.
