SIMPLIS Technologies attended APEC 2019 in Anaheim, CA on March 17-21, 2019.
Our Exhibitor Seminar was held on Tuesday, March 19th from 2:15-2:45PM in Room 212AB where John Wilson and Andrija Stupar presented on the topic of "SIMPLIS Magnetic Design Module and User C-code DLL Defined Digital Device":
A digitally controlled PFC boost converter is modeled in SIMPLIS with the control algorithm defined by a user-generated C-code DLL. Placed on the schematic like any other SIMPLIS component, the device behavior is defined by C or C++ code rather than by logic gates and other digital circuit elements. We then design the boost inductor and analyze its performance using the new SIMPLIS Magnetics Design Module – step-by-step, selecting the core, wire, winding arrangement, and cooling method. Results include core losses, detailed winding losses (including losses due to the air gap fringing flux), the inductance characteristic, and core and winding temperatures.
