Introduction to PLECS Blockset

This tutorial video provides an introduction to PLECS Blockset. It builds on the basic modeling information provided in the tutorial video "Introduction to PLECS Standalone" and includes a demonstration of modeling a DC/DC converter including PLECS' ideal switches.

The video's highlights are using the schematic editor and component library, and designing a closed-loop system with the control scheme provided in Simulink. The resulting waveforms are then viewed in the PLECS Scope.

Many of the concepts shown are also relevant in PLECS Standalone, with two exceptions:

  1. the ability to design and integrate control blocks in Simulink and
  2. PLECS Blockset simulations use Simulink's solvers directly.
