SM Torque Control

This example shows how to control the torque 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 angular velocity source provides the load. The Control subsystem uses an open-loop approach to control the torque and a closed-loop approach to control the current. At each sample instant, the torque request is converted to relevant current references. The current control is PI-based. The simulation uses several torque steps in both motor and generator modes. The task scheduling is implemented as a Stateflow® state machine. The Visualization subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
