Three-Phase Custom PMSM

This example shows a custom Simscape™ implementation of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM). To view the PMSM source code, double-click on the motor block and then click on the hyperlink 'Source code'. This test circuit shows the PMSM being used as a generator, the rectifier block converting the induced AC back EMFs to a DC voltage which is in turn applied to a resistive load.


Simulation Results from Simscape Logging

The first subplot shows the AC currents generated by the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM). The second subplot shows the DC current through the resistive load.
