Simulation of Power Electronic Circuits

Simulation plays a very important role in designing complex systems such as power electronic circuits. A number of software packages are available to simulate power electronic circuits at the present time. With simulation, it is possible to quickly find out the effect of circuit parameters on the circuit performance, and some of the time-consuming and expensive prototyping steps can be avoided. For these reasons, simulation has become an important component in academic programs and also in industrial design processes. This course addresses issues involved in simulation of power electronic circuits. 


The goal of this short-term course is to give the participants a direct hands-on experience on some commonly used simulation software packages for “advance power electronic circuit simulation”. To start with, brief introduction to the example will be given as theory and then followed by hands-on session in which the participants will simulate these circuits using some of the commonly used software packages (PSCAD, PSIM, MATLAB, SABER etc). A brief background in 
numerical analysis, particularly in the context of simulation of advanced power electronic circuits will also be given to the participants. It is expected that the experience gained by the participants through the course help them to appreciate/compare working of various simulators/software meant for simulation of power electronic circuits.
