Simple Motor Armature Winding Fault

This example shows a DC Motor block that supports faults. The DC motor reaches a steady state speed that is close to the value of the Rated speed (at rated load) parameter within a couple of seconds. If you create a fault and inject it after the motor reaches steady-state, the motor speed changes to a new, slower steady-state speed. If you inject the fault during the motor transient response, the behavior depends on the motor speed.
