PSIM Powered by Embedded Ch
PSIM from Powersim Inc.
is a simulation software specifically designed for
power electronics and motor drive systems. It features an intuitive
and easy-to-use graphic user interface, fast and robust simulation engine,
and provides a powerful simulation and design environment for
switchmode power supplies, power management, analog/digital control,
and motor drive systems.
The Ch interpreter embedded in PSIM greatly enhances PSIM's
capability and flexibility in control simulation and device modeling.
With this feature, users can implement a control scheme in
C code, and enter the code directly in the PSIM environment.
Also, it allows users to model a device or functional block using the
powerful C language.
As an example, the diagram below illustrates how the Ch interpreter is used
in PSIM. The circuit on the top shows a boost power factor correction
circuit with the control loops in z-domain block diagram. The circuit on
the bottom shows the same circuit, but with the control loops implemented
in the C Script Block powered by the Ch interepreter.
