    Abstract

    Mechatronic systems consist of components from different technologies, like electronics, electro-mechanics and mechanics. Simulation allows to examine the interactions between the various components. This article describes how an affordable SPICE-based analog circuit simulator is used to model mechatronic systems. A schematic editor has been customised to ease model entry. A large multitechnical library, consisting of electrical, electromechanical, mechanical and hydraulic components has been developed, in order to allow rapid prototyping of mechatronic systems. The article discusses the modelling of electromechanical actuators and planar mechanisms more in detail.
