Inertias and Loads

Variable and unbalanced driveline loads

The Simscape™ Driveline™ Inertias and Loads library provides blocks that allow you to model the dynamics of physical systems that contain elements that have an unbalanced load, a varying inertia, or a varying mass. For example, satellites that unfold solar panel arrays can vary in inertia, fuel tanks with progressively lower fuel contents can vary in mass, and a spinning axis that wobbles is an unbalanced load.
