This tutorial video provides an introduction to PLECS Standalone. The highlights of the video are using the schematic editor and component library, and running a simple simulation of a passive circuit excited by a pulsed voltage waveform. The resulting waveforms are then viewed in the PLECS Scope.
Most of the concepts shown are also relevant in PLECS Blockset, with the exception that a PLECS Standalone simulation uses its own independent solvers, and not the Simulink solvers. For a demonstration of modeling a DC/DC converter including the ideal switches found in the PLECS component library, please view the tutorial video "Introduction to PLECS Blockset".
