For the DC grid simulation there are two approaches currently under development. The educational simulation examples can be downloaded below. For some of the examples a screenshot is presented below. All simulation examples are available via the download link: Download all simulations
All simulations run within the free Viewer of Caspoc that can be downloaded here for free Download the free viewer
The design tools are developed to get a better understanding of DC grids. These tools can be operated directly from any device; PC, Tablet or smart-phone.
The currently released tools can be accessed here Design Tools
Simulation Research has introduced a new generation of design tool to better help companies seize opportunities in a market where global competition pushes for shorter time-to-market and higher performance.
CLOUD-BASED ON YOUR SMARTPHONE
The software runs directly in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere, any time using a standard smartphone.
CAUGHT BETWEEN THE HAMMER AND THE ANVIL
Designing performing power converters has become increasingly challenging in the last years and this trend is not slowing down. On the one hand, power designers need to master a wide set of skills: topologies, component selection, inductor sizing and thermal evaluation among others. On the other hand, competition at international level drives the entire industry toward product differentiation and shorter development cycles. For design teams, finding the product-price market fit has never been so challenging!
Caspoc Online Design Tool is a powerful platform for designing, exploring and comparing power converter designs. Centered around the engineer’s workflow, it offers a seamless experience from product specification stages to trade-off of most advanced multilevel topologies and sizing of passive and active components. Thanks to multidisciplinary integration of electric, magnetic and thermal aspects early in the design process, Caspoc Online Design Tool empowers development teams with a unique tool for designing lighter, smaller and more efficient converters in record time. “Simulation Research has concentrated years of research and know-how in a single tool to allow direct comparison of standard and new designs”, says Dr. Bernd, scientific advisor at Siemens.
The combination of deep power electronics knowledge with proprietary fast steady-state calculation algorithms built into Caspoc Online Design Tool enables the exploration of cutting-edge SMPS conversion stages in unprecedented short time.
Key features of Caspoc Online Design Tool include:
• Automated design of bidirectional non-isolated DC/DC and DC/AC conversion stages in the kW to MW range,
• Effortless transition and comparison between well-known 2-level and advanced SMPS topologies,
• Device and material libraries including IGBT & MOSFET, capacitors and magnetic materials,
• Instant mass, volume and loss estimates for active and passive components,
• Ready-to-use file exports for industry-standard software,
• Real-time, collaborative multi-user project sharing thanks to cloud access.
Demand for more efficient power converters keeps driving the entire industry toward fast-paced evolutions in all domains of power electronics. Designers need to maintain a deep expertise in an increasingly number of subjects. Simulation Research made the same observation and developed Caspoc Online Design Tool, the reference platform for engineers to explore cutting-edge designs in record time and develop winning products!
There were numerous presentations regarding the development of DC grids and the last presentations focused on the educational aspect, by presenting the educational simulation method.
Power Electronics Event, Den Bosch, Agenda Juni 2019
At this event a workshop was presented where the design tools were introduced. Workshop DC Grids at the Power Electronics Event, Den Bosch, Juni 2019
The ISETC18 Organizing Committee invited us to attend the 13th International Symposium on Electronics and Telecommunications, Timisoara, Romania and to present our research on education for DC Grids.
ISETC 2018 brings together members from academia and industry to present their achievements in electronics and telecommunications. The symposium is organized by the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications (Politehnica University of Timisoara) and the Association of Electrical Engineers from Timisoara;DC grid presentation held at the ISETC'18
