Free MathWorks seminars for controlling electromechanical systems

The MathWorks will be holding free seminars in Melbourne and Adelaide on March 31st and April 1st 2009 respectively, exploring the topic of Modelling and Control Design of Electromechanical Systems using Simulink.

The seminars will be delivered by MathWorks engineers and contain new material including technical presentations, live demos, and a case study demonstrating a live motion control test rig exhibiting control design challenges.

The use of Simulink enables the faster and easier creation of dynamic models of electromechanical machines, says MathWorks.

This seminar explains how modeling and simulation can be used more effectively in the design process to improve the quality of designs and reduce development time, the company says.

“Engineers are increasingly faced with pressure to reduce development time and cost,” said The MathWorks Australia managing director, Andrew Clay.

“Engineering teams who verify system algorithms and designs early achieve an important competitive advantage. They are able to cut development time by as much as 80%, meet rigorous quality standards, and deliver systems with extraordinary performance.”

Seminar highlights include:

• A motion control case study: from problem formulation to real-time implementation;

• Modeling made easy: first-principles, data-driven, or both;

• Designing a controller in Simulink; and

• A clear solution from modeling and simulation to hardware implementation.

The complimentary seminars will be held in:

Melbourne on Tuesday, 31 March 2009 from 8:30am -12:30pm

Adelaide on Wednesday, 1 April 2009 from 8:30am — 12:30pm
