Nowadays the simulation is inseparable part of researcher's work. Its computation time may significantly exceed the experiment time. On the other hand, multi-core processors are common in personal computers. These processors can be used to reduce computation time by using parallel computing on multiple cores. The most popular software applied to simulate behavior of the plant is MATLAB/Simulink. A single simulation of Simulink model cannot be computed by multiple cores, but there are many engineering problems, that require a multiple simulation of the same model with different parameters. In these problems, the parallel computing can be employed to decrease the overall simulation time. In this paper the parallel computing is used to speed-up the auto-tuning process of state feedback speed controller for PMSM drive. In order to obtain the optimal coefficients of the controller, an Artificial Bee Colony optimization algorithm is employed.
