SIMPLIS Technologies attended APEC 2017 in Tampa, FL on March 26-30, 2017.
We were at Booth #1223 on the Main Exhibition Hall Floor.
Our Exhibitor Seminar was held on Tuesday, March 28th from 2:15-2:45PM in Room 22 where Christopher Bridge and Tom Wilson presented on the topic of "Performing AC Analyses on PFC Converters":
Because the SIMPLIS Periodic Operating Point (POP) & AC analyses are performed at a single operating frequency, performing AC analyses on time-domain simulation models of PFC converters is challenging, since the circuit typically has no true steady-state when the line voltage is sinusoidal. In this seminar, we present and compare the results of three methods for measuring the loop gain, input and output impedance of a PFC converter generated with either an AC line voltage or a DC input employing either the SIMPLIS POP & AC analysis or the SIMPLIS DVM Multi-tone AC analysis.
