HESM Velocity Control

This example shows how to control the rotor angular velocity in a hybrid excitation synchronous machine (HESM) based electrical-traction drive. Permanent magnets and an excitation winding excite the HESM. A high-voltage battery feeds the HESM through a controlled three-phase converter for the stator windings and through a controlled four quadrant chopper for the rotor winding. An ideal torque source provides the load. The Control subsystem includes a multi-rate PI-based cascade control structure. The control structure has an outer angular-velocity-control loop and three inner current-control loops. The Visualization subsystem contains scopes that allow you to see the simulation results.
