Fig. 4: MathWorks & IAR system strength. Together this forms a multi-step approach for aligning the overall design and allows individual control steps to be analysed independently. Once the hardware and software specification has been completed, the complete system architecture can be setup for deployment of both specific algorithm and functionality of the overall system - see figure 3. Simulation of controller and plant models can be evaluated. Off-line development of algorithms without access to hardware can be architected and fine-tuned to meet overall system performance requirements. Initial code generation, either with existing code “reuse” or code generated by a code generation tool, can be deployed to the embedded controller to compare the system simulation on a Fig. 5: Deployment environment. PC with the actual implementation data on a hardware target. A designer must consider the complexity of the model when defining a correctly balanced structure for MBD. However, once a balanced concept is realized, it is possible to quickly change independent models within the design and achieve more accurate results from the entire drive system. À la Minute!
