Drive Train Simulator
to use electric drive train development tool. Select motors,
wheel diameter and gear reduction, then take it for a test drive
on a virtual test track.
Excellent design tool for building robotic R/C type drive trains
like those used in BattleBots®, BattleBots IQ, Robotica,
BotBash, Steel Conflict, First Robotics, Best Robotics, Techno
Games or Robot Wars.
Includes four wheel car type and cycle type drive trains that can
be used in designing electric go-karts, electric scooters or electric
Simulates battery voltage, state of charge, and internal resistance,
so you can see how your bots performance changes as the batteries
Motor simulation allows you to see how motors will run at higher
or lower voltages than the motor's designed voltage.
Motor manufacturers rate motors in different ways making it difficult
to compare motors. In EDTSim all motors are rated in the
same way, using the motor constants, making it easy to compare
Large database of motors includes size, weight, torque, rpm, manufacturer,
approximate price and places to buy them.
Motor and drive train specs can be displayed in whatever metric
or imperial units you prefer.
Large battery database includes size, weight, voltage, internal
resistance, Peukert value and capacity at different discharge rates.
Knowing a motor's power rating isn't enough. The power you'll
get out of a system isn't just dependent on the motor, it depends
on the motor, batteries and the electrical resistance of the speed
controller and wiring.
EDTSim takes all these factors into account and tells you the power
of all the components combined.
Includes motor and battery editor so you can use manufacturer specs
or test data to add motors and batteries to the database.
example drive trains ranging is size from 1 to 360 lb and can be
used for any size drive train that uses permanent magnet DC (PMDC)
Includes twelve drive train configurations, two, four and six wheel
tank or wheelchair type differential steering (also known as skid
steering) drive train types with two, four or six motors. Two and
four wheel car type Ackerman steering with front, rear and four
wheel drive configurations.
