RecurDyn Control communicates with various control software systems to facilitate co-simulations between control systems and mechanical systems modeled in RecurDyn. This plays an important role since design algorithms of a controller and the corresponding mechanical system should be evaluated simultaneously when simulating a computer-controlled system. The control system can be easily designed using control system software such as MATLAB / Simulink.
Accurate and robust models of a mechanism are required for the design and parameter optimization of control system algorithms, as well as their reliability verification. RecurDyn provides a diverse set of tools to ananlyze mechanism models coupled with the control system algorithm. RecurDyn provides an interface for the co-simulation with the Matlab / Simulink and AMESim software which are widely used in mechatronics. In addition RecurDyn supports FMI to incorporate the use of Modelica based applications. RecurDyn Colink allows for fast and accurate control system anaysis through the deep integration of the control simulation code with the RecurDyn´s dynamics solver.
