Introduction to ANSYS Simplorer

Course Overview

The course will teach students how to use ANSYS Simplorer for the design, modeling, analysis and optimization of high-performance systems including electrical, thermal, electromechanical, electromagnetic, and hydraulic designs which are commonly found in the automotive, aerospace/defense, and industrial automation industries.

Course Description

The intro to Simplorer training is a 1-day class, which provides an overview of Simplorer’s versatile capability as a system level simulator. The training introduces the software’s user interface (UI), data structure, basic circuits and multiphysics models, component library, VHDL model, C- model, analog/digital control blocks, function blocks, state machines, coupling between physics based models (finite element models), post-processing, modeling conventions, etc. The training is extremely useful and practical for system level engineers or anyone who is interested in performing system level simulations. Many practical examples are provided in the training so that users can get up to speed with the software quickly and jump right into their own design simulations after the training.

Topics to be covered:

  • Overview
  • Basic Usage flow
  • Specific Capabilities
  • Intro and creating new projects
  • 3 phase rectifier example
  • Basic DC Motor example
  • Basic DC Motor with expanded controller
  • Basic DC Motor using VHDL-AMS modeling
  • PWM Modeling using a variety of modeling methods
  • Importing legacy schematics

The course also includes relevant "hands-on" workshops and exercises.
