PSIM + Typhoon + PE-Expert4

The new benchmark for Power Electronics development


Fill the form on the right and instantly watch the recorded webinar with PSIM. 


Designing and developing power converters and motor drives that use digital control is becoming increasingly complex with faster design iterations required. Therefore, a tight integration between offline simulation, digital control implementation, and hardware testing is required.

The next evolution in tools combines PSIM, Typhoon-HIL, & the PE-Expert4 development system. Each tool represents a company that specializes in a specific role rather than one company that does all three with a lower degree of performance.


In this webinar this tight integration between these three platforms is being demonstrated using a PMSM motor drive and a multi-level inverter case study. 



1. Introduction

2. Panel Discussions

  • Major Challenges to Embedded Development and Testing
  • Offline vs Real-Time Simulation
  • Key Advantages of an Integrated Development System

3. Live Demos

  • 7-level Converter
  • Real Motor
  • HIL Motor
  • Test and Automation

4. Q&A


You will learn how to:

  • use PSIM to automatically generate mixed DSP/FPGA control code
  • verify the code in real time with Typhoon-HIL simulation
  • export the power stage to a Typhoon HIL
  • generate the control code from PSIM for shortest possible design iteration time through offline simulation and real-time control verification

Albert Dunford is a Power Electronics Applications Engineer at PowersimAfter completing his degree in Applied Science at the University of British Columbia, Albert worked in industry for 9 years before joining Powersim 5 years ago. Albert's industrial experience is with two startup companies. One company was involved with high efficiency voltage regulation for commercial buildings 440kVA - 1.5 MVA using a semiconductor based tap changer for an auto-transformer. Albert received a patent for his work developing a way to change the electronics while the unit remained energized. He then worked for a spin-off company from UBC's applied biophysics lab. Albert was responsible for the complete electrical design for a novel method to separate DNA from contaminates using rotating high voltage electric fields. The system was later improved to allow for the selection of DNA based on sequence down to a single base pair mismatch and high sensitivity using rotating thermal and electric fields. Since joining Powersim 5 years ago, Albert has worked to provide PSIM users with unmatched technical support for power converter and motor drive design. Albert's webinars and tutorial videos have over 350k total views on subjects ranging from power converter design and stability to motor drives to embedded code generation.
