Online PowerBench Tools: Simulators

January 20, 2015

Knowing exactly how power components will behave is crucial if engineers are to be able to develop power systems that work as intended on the first revision.  Our PowerBench™ Simulator provides precision modeling of electrical and thermal behavior for a range of our products, enabling engineers to understand exactly how they will operate in a real application.

This online simulator allows the user to define the operating and environmental conditions: in addition to setting the basic Line and Load conditions, the user can also adjust input and output impedance and filter conditions.

A range of products are supported by the PowerBench Simulator, including DCMs, BCMs, PRMs and Intermediate Bus Converters (IBCs). Currently over 50 standard Vicor power components are supported. The tool will simulate Vin startup, EN startup, steady state operation, EN shutdown, a step change in the load and a step change in Vin. This allows power system designers to understand the operation of the component in a wide range of different situations.

The PowerBench Simulator allows the values of filter and other peripheral components to be modified, and the user can select the duration of the simulation. When the simulation is run, the tool produces detailed voltage and current waveforms to show the behavior at various points in the circuit that are selectable by the user.
