APPLICATION OF NUMERICAL SOFTWARES IN ELECTRICAL MACHINES MODELLING
Numerical simulation softwares are used for research and teaching, to allow a good comprehension of the systems under study before practical implementations. In electrical machines modelling, the resulting system of differential equations are usually non-linear. Attempt to solve the equation analytically is usually difficult; thus numerical method of analysis becomes highly imperative. This paper illustrates the way some commercially available software packages such as, MATLAB, SIMPLORER and RMxprt are used to simulate models and their ability to make convoluted analysis rather simple. Some practical examples are used to illustrate their capabilities in the area of electrical machines and power electronics.
