Robotic Arm System - Application Brief

A robotic system can be modeled using a state-of-the-art cosimulation feature in ANSYS Simplorer that enables direct linking to the rigid dynamics solver within ANSYS Mechanical. This transient-to-transient link allows engineers to combine detailed rigid mechanics models with power electronics, electric servo drives and control system models in one simulation environment. Advanced analysis capabilities can then determine the dynamic response of an assembly of rigid bodies linked by joints, such as a robotic arm or a crankshaft system.
