Determination of the seven parameters of a Direct Current (DC) motor and drive is presented, based on the speed and current step responses. The method is extended for the motor and drive parameter determination in the case of a controlled drive. The influence of a speed controller on the responses is considered in the motor model with the use of the measured voltage. Current limitation of the supply unit is also considered in the DC motor model. For parameter determination, a motor model is

For parameter determination, evolutionary methods are used and compared to each other. Methods used are Genetic Algorithm, Differential Evolutions with two strategies, Teaching–Learning-Based Optimization, and Artificial Bee Colony. To improve results, deviation of the motor model simulation time is used and Memory Assistance with three different approaches is analyzed to shorten the calculation time. The tests showed that Differential Evolution (DE)/rand/1/exp is the most appropriate for the presented problem. The division of the motor model simulation time improves the results. For the presented problem, short-term memory assistance can be suggested for calculation time reduction.
