PLECS® is a tool of choice for high-speed simulations of power electronic systems. It is available in two editions:
What's new in version 3.3:
PLECS introduces a new physical domain for modelling complex magnetci structures with lumped elements using primitives such as windings, cores and air gaps. The available core models include saturation and hysteresis.
Enhanced PLECS Scope
Users can now customise the curve properties such as colour and line style in the scopes by defining their own palettes or directly editing individual curves. Traces can now be stored to a f file and reloaded in later sessions. The new 'auto-spread' feature allows easy viewing of multiple digital waveforms in a single plot.
«We have selected PLECS because it is very convenient to use in both development and teaching. We need to keep our students competitive by using standardised tools that are optimised for today's power electronics industry.»
