PowerEsim – Online power supply design

PowerESIM is a eCAD tool for switching power supplies on the Internet. Web Based Switching Power Supply design and Simulation.

PowerEsim – Online power supply design

The most important characteristic powerEsim is that it provide a virtual laboratory environment for engineer to verify and fine tune their design. Experience engineer use it to optimize their design by saving a lot of time than in real bench.

PowerEsim - Online power supply design

The circuit simulator is a combination of iteration, equation based apporoach and time step integration. The circuit is defined by non-linear equations and the simulator will first solving the switching condition solution for t=infinity by bracketed iteration, then fine step of point by point results will be generated by those equations for V, I and loss analysis.

“In a real laboratory, engineers have the ability to feel the heat, measure the stress, wind real transformers and wait and see how long until the unit gets burned. With our seamless integration of a variety of tools such as thermal, MTBF, Life, DVT, Waveform, etc., users can now do the same things in PowerEsim virtual environment.”
