The Power Supply Design Suite makes the design process of a resonant LLC converter, which requires iterations of many design variables, considerably easier and faster
The Design Suite provides a Steady State Solver Tool and a Design Curve Tool to provide closed-form solutions of key design variables and waveforms instantly
A general template with 4 resonant elements to design and optimize 5 different resonant tanks (LC, LLC, CLL, CL, LLC-L/CLLL)
New Features Added to the Motor Control Design Suite:
Improved motor control blocks with advanced Maximum‐Torque‐Per‐Volt (MTPV) control
MTPV control is critically important in extending the motor operation into the high-speed region
Speed Control block implements advanced Maximum‐Torque‐Per‐Ampere (MTPA) control, field weakening control, and MTPV control
New Speed‐Torque Curve and design templates in the Motor Control Design Suite, including support to JMAG‐RT models
Provides quick insight on the operation boundary of the drive system, and can help in the proper definition of the operation conditions and control loop design
JMAG‐RT model design template
A JMAG‐RT model has a very high level of fidelity that is comparable to an actual motor
The Motor Control Design Suite allows for the setup and simulation of a motor drive system with close-to-real-world motor behavior
New RT block that supports all JMAG‐RT models
The block provides an easy way to connect JMAG‐RT models with the rest of the power electronics and control system for performance evaluation
supports all types of JMAG-RT models
Direct interface with JMAG‐Express Online
JMAG‐Express Online is a free web‐based platform provided by JSOL Co.
Quickly design a motor with minimum inputs
This interface streamlines the workflow from motor design in JMAG‐Express Online to drive performance evaluation in PSIM
Updates to PSIM:
New devices added to the database
Over 50 new IGBT and MOSFET devices for loss calculation from manufacturers including Infineon, Semikron, Mitsubishi Electric, Powerex, Fuji Electric, and Vincotech.
For many of the IGBT devices, parameters of the Level‐2 models are also provided
Multi‐Level Models for 1‐phase and 3‐phase Inverters
Integrated with the switching models in one multi‐level model
New Script Functions
For example, functions to perform transpose of a matrix and calculate matrix eigenvalues, inverse, and determinant
Also, a function to load another script into a script and run the other script
New Welcome Page
Convenient and quick access to recent files, examples, and commonly used functions and resources
Links to recent and upcoming news and events
Update to SimCoder:
SimCoder C Block
With this block, you can protect the block, and send it to someone else to use without revealing the details of the block.
PSIM is now more powerful than ever, setting the standard for power electronics simulation software with simulation speed, accuracy, and ease of use.
