This open-source software includes simulation models for an induction motor, a synchronous reluctance motor, and a permanent-magnet synchronous motor. The motor models are simulated in the continuous-time domain while the control algorithms run in discrete time. The default solver is the explicit Runge-Kutta method of order 5(4). Simple control algorithms are provided as examples.
