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.
