Q: Is PSIM 32-bit or 64-bit compatible with Matlab and/or JMAG 32-bit or 64-bit?
A: PSIM 64-bit can be installed on Windows 64-bit, and it is compatible with Matlab 64-bit and JMAG 64-bit. It is not compatible with Matlab 32-bit and JMAG 32-bit.
PSIM 32-bit can be installed on both Windows 32-bit and Windows 64-bit. It is compatible with Matlab 32-bit and JMAG 32-bit. It is not compatible with Matlab 64-bit and JMAG 64-bit.
Q: Is PSIM Version 11 compatible with the previous versions?
A: PSIM Version 11 is backward compatible. That is, Version 11 can read the previous version files. But previous versions (such as Version 10.0, 9.3, 9.2, 9.1, 9.0, 8.0, or 7.1, 7.0, or 6.1) can not read Version 11 files. Version 11 has the option to save files in the Version 9.3, 9.2, 9.1, 9.0, and 8.0 format.

A minimum of 500MB RAM memory is required. The program will occupy around 560MB hard disk space after installed.
Q: Is PSIM Windows 7, 8, and 10 compatible? Does PSIM run in a 64-bit environment?
A: Yes, PSIM Versions 11.0, 10.0, 9.3, 9.2, 9.1, 9.0, 8.0, and 7.1.2 are all tested and fully functional in Windows 7 and 8. PSIM Versions 11.0, 10.0 and 9.3 are tested and fully functioning on Windows 10.
Yes, PSIM Versions 11.0, 10.0, 9.3, 9.2, 9.1, 9.0, 8.0, and 7.1.2 are all tested and running on 64-bit machines. In addition, PSIM Version 9 and later versions are available as both 32- and 64-bit.
Q: Can PSIM run on a MAC?
A: At this time, PSIM does not currently support Mac. However, you may wish to explore this link which is about virtual machines:
This enables a user to use Windows on their Mac machine. It is recommended to look into the specifications needed for your particular MAC. Several users have successfully run PSIM on their Mac using VMWare.
**when using VM, it gives the option to allocate memory. It is important to allocate enough memory to PSIM or else the performance is sub-optimal.
Q: Can PSIM run on Linux?
A: The License Manger for network licenses can be installed on Linux. However, PSIM will run only on Windows OS. A user may use a Windows emulator on Linux to run PSIM.
Q: Can PSIM simulate digital control scheme?
A: Yes. The Digital Control Module in PSIM provides a number of function blocks, such as zero-order hold, unit delay, z-domain transfer function blocks, digital FIR and IIR filters, circular buffer, quantization block, and other blocks, which can be used to implement a digital control scheme. Further, an AC sweep with digital elements can be performed of a topology to determine the impacts of digital delay on the phase of plant response. This information is invaluable when implementing a control scheme in the z-domain.
With PSIM one can study the effect of different sampling rates, investigate the quantization effect of the A/D conversion with different number of bits, and evaluate the performance of a digital filter.
PSIM provides in depth support for digital control applications with the following modules:
The SimCoder + targets allow a control algorithm to be automatically converted into C code that is ready to run on a target DSP - F2833x, F2803x, F2802x, F2806x. The Processor-In-the-Loop, PIL, module allows you to run your control scheme on a TI MCU while it controls your power stage defined in PSIM.
