Electrical Engineering Software



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 3.5

  • Tunable Parameters
    Selected parameters can be changed while a simulation is running. This includes most control block parameters, such as gains or saturation limits, and parameters of physical sources and passive linear components.
  • Enabled Subsystems
    The new Enable block permits the conditional execution of subsystems containing control blocks.
  • Code Generation
    The PLECS Coder (both for PLECS Blockset and PLECS Standalone) now fully supports naturally commutated devices, such as diodes and thyristors, and control blocks with a discrete sample time.

"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."
