Powerful Functional Design Tools

In addition to the modeling interface and component library, PLECS provides several tools to aid in the design and analysis of power electronic systems.

  • During or after simulation, data is visualized in the PLECS Scope. Inspired by a real power electronics measurement and instrumentation system, the scope allows a user to extract the exact waveforms of interest as well as examine the data for post-processing and reporting.
  • The built-in Analysis Tools are easily set up to provide steady-state operating points or open-loop and closed-loop transfer functions. Additionally, state space matrices of a system can be extracted for advanced analyses.
  • Using Simulation Scripts the user can change parameters and invoke simulations or post-process output data and evaluate results.
  • The separately available PLECS Coder can generate C code from a circuit created with PLECS Blockset.
