This webinar focuses on the use of PSIM level 2 MOSFET, IGBT, & diode models to see how a non-ideal switch transition can be modeled in PSIM. We also look at the non-ideal DSIM device models and evaluate their performance.
A PSIM level 2 model can be defined to provide a realistic device transition and uses a proper gate drive circuit to accomplish this. While they are not as detailed and "general" as a SPICE model they can provide very comparable waveforms and results.
We look at the performance of these non-ideal device models and do some comparisons to SPICE.
- Simple DC-DC converters
- Motor drives
- EMI considerations
- Impact of dv/dt & di/dt with distributed cable models
- Comparing old gen IGBT, MOSFET with new SiC-based devices
- Converter efficiency simulation with level 2 vs using thermal devices
