Designing Control Schemes for a Next-Generation Washing Machine
Whirlpool® Duet HT® washing machineWhirlpool Corporation is replacing a paper-driven design process with Model-Based Design to develop advanced control algorithms for the Whirlpool® Duet HT® washing machine. Using this approach, Whirlpool models the behavior of a washing machine with MATLAB and Simulink, then designs control schemes for different wash sequences and set combinations. Hardware interconnections are specified using target-specific I/O blocks in the model. Once the control schemes are tested through simulation, the engineers use Real-Time Workshop to generate the control code, which they download to an xPC TargetBox connected to the washing machine\u2019s motor, to verify the controller performance with the production equipment.
