Modelica library for the simulation of electromechanical drives such as:

  • Electric vehicles
  • Electric railway vehicles
  • Industrial drives
  • Machine tools

ElectroMechanicalDrives library

This library enables the investigation of the operational behaviour of electric drives and the dimensioning electric drive components.

The library provides:

  • Vehicle with
    • Aerodynamic friction
    • Rolling friction
    • Inclination of road
    • Optional electrical drive
  • Linear, symmetric and chargeable battery model, parameterized by cut off voltage, charge voltage, energy
  • Ideal DC/DC converter with no loss
  • Simplified DC machine model with field weakening capability
  • Ideal mechanical machines with field weakening capabilities
  • Translational and rotational friction models
  • Translational and rotational constant friction models


This library is published under the BSD-3-Clause.

Development and contribution

The library was developed to provide course material at the TGM, Wexstraße 19-23, 1200 Vienna, Austria. Library authors is Christian Kral.
