Power Electronics Control Design

Discover three areas where Power Electronics Control Design with Simulink can transform your engineering projects. Reduce project time by 50%, access thousands of electrical modeling components, and build and tune motor control algorithms with ease.

  • 2503

In today’s dynamic engineering landscape, Power Electronics Control Design (PECD) is a game-changer that empowers engineers and researchers to efficiently design, simulate, and implement digital control for motors, power converters, and battery systems. With Simulink as your ally, the possibilities are boundless.

PECD with Simulink® helps engineers to:

  • Reduce project time by 50% by simulating and generating code for supervisory and closed-loop control algorithms instead of traditional hand coding and testing on hardware.
  • Access thousands of ready-to-use electrical modeling components and examples for desktop simulation.
  • Use add-on toolboxes for control design, fixed-point design, signal processing, and certification.
  • Get real-time simulation support for Speedgoat and other real-time hardware platforms.
  • Generate ANSI C and processor-optimized C and HDL code for multiple leading microcontrollers, FPGAs, and SoCs.

Build and Tune Motor Control Algorithms


Build and Tune Motor Control Algorithms

Build accurate system models using MATLAB and Simulink by using libraries of motors, power electronics, sensors, and loads. Explore the full potential of Bode plots and root locus as well as other classic linear control design techniques. The inverter power electronics that regulate voltage and frequency can be controlled via automated PID tuning.
To design current and speed controllers, you can use Simulink to run closed-loop simulations under normal and abnormal operating conditions. To ensure safe motor operation, design fault detection and protection logic for model starting, shutdown, and error modes, as well as derating and protection logic.

Design Digital Control for Power Converters Faster with Simulink



Simulate analog and digital components in the same environment with Simulink. Evaluate and verify design choices before implementing the controller with a closed-loop simulation of the power stage and controller.
Model power converters at different levels of fidelity. Using AC frequency sweeps and system identification, perform small signal analysis on switching converter models to obtain linear models. Classic control techniques (Interactive Loop Shaping with Bode, Root-Locus Plots) are possible with these models.
