Simulation Software for Power Electronics

PLECS® is the tool of choice for high-speed simulations of power electronic systems. It is available in two editions: PLECS Blockset for seamless integration with MATLAB®/Simulink®, and PLECS Standalone, a completely independent product.

What's new in Version 3.6

  • Assertion Framework
    Monitor signals during a simulation and raise a warning or error message, or pause the simulation, when specified conditions are violated.
  • Multitone Analysis
    Obtain Bode plots faster than with a traditional AC Analysis. Study switched and non-switched systems.
  • Code Generation
    Run faster real-time simulations by leveraging the new switching algorithms for naturally commutated devices.
  • Web-Based Simulation
    Share PLECS models via the Web. Models can be viewed, parameterized and simulated from any browser without the need to download additional software. See this demo...
  • Processor-in-the-Loop (PIL)
    Execute control code on actual embedded hardware tied into the virtual loop of a PLECS model. Develop, test and validate complete control projects with PIL in conjunction with the new PLECS MCU peripheral library. Learn more...

"Using PLECS for simulation very much corresponds to the way electrical engineers think: model building is straight forward and the calculations run both, reliably and quickly."
