Why Choose PSIM for Power Electronics Simulation?
PSIM allows you to dual declare a PSIM/SPICE model for a seamless transition between a SPICE simulation or a PSIM simulation. This allows designers to have one schematic for their system level (PSIM) or device level simulations (SPICE).
LEVEL 2 PSIM MODELS
PSIM has level 2 Models for the switch (diode, MOSFET, IGBT), these models are derived from datasheet parameters and can be used in larger system level simulations including motor models and digital control circuits that cannot be run with SPICE. Make use of the dual model definitions to verify the level 2 model vs the SPICE model.
NOVEL SiC/GaN SPICE MODELS
The PSIM SPICE Pro module allows access to novel thermal wide band gap SPICE models from CoolCAD electronics. These models are verified across operating temperature ranges vs the real devices.
LTSPICE OR NGSPICE
Experienced SPICE designers have likely encountered the frustration of SPICE model syntax compatibility. PSIM allows users to run two SPICE engines, the native PSIM SPICE engine which is a NGSPICE/SPICE 3F variant or to run LTSPICE. Leverage PSIM’s dual model definitions which allow one schematic to be used with PSIM or SPICE.
The link between PSIM and SPICE is constantly improving. Starting with PSIM v12 you are able to simulate the frequency response of a switch mode power supply in LTspice or PSIM SPICE without the use of average models. A very similar method to how the native PSIM engine simulates a frequency response. PSIM will handle the heavy lifting of injecting each frequency and compiling the gain and phase response at each frequency.
The PSIM AC sweep tool is optimized for the study of switching power converters.
There is no need to generate equations or average models of your topology in order to sweep open loop, loop gain, close loop, input impedance, and output impedance transfer functions. Digital delay can be introduced and the impact observed.
MODEL BASED CODE GENERATION
PSIM supports simulations that are setup to generate embedded code for industry standard C2000 MCU’s from Texas Instruments.
VHDL or VERILOG VERIFICATION
IDEAL or DETAILED
PSIM allows users to easily change between ideal devices, detailed switching models, thermal devices, and with the release of PSIM v11.0 & v11.1, SPICE models. This allows you to choose the appropriate model for your simulation requirements.
PSIM IS INTERACTIVE
PSIM allows you to change parameter values and view voltages/currents during simulation. It’s like having a virtual test bench running on your computer.
PSIM has an extensive library and includes pre-built sample circuits and tutorials to support you in both research and teaching.
