Join Veer Alakshendra and Maitreyee Mordekar as they discuss modeling and simulation of a pneumatic system relevant to robotics competitions such as Robocon.
Veer and Maitreyee show how you can model a pneumatic system by using physical blocks available in Simscape™. You can use blocks like a constant volume chamber, a directional control valve, and translational mechanical converters to build a pneumatic circuit. Veer and Maitreyee also show how heat transfer effects due to convection have been taken into consideration. Finally, they discuss the results where they compare the load position and pressure in the chamber for different values of loads.
