Power Electronics

Power electronics systems are complex. Simulation provides the tools to efficiently solve high-level design challenges, improve performance and drive innovation.


Design and Optimization of Power Electronics

Ansys offers system-level design, analysis and optimization solutions for power electronic systems inclusive of inverters, converters, electric machines, sensors, semiconductors (IGBTs), circuit boards and cables. Our simulation tools help solve issues like semiconductor loss and thermal performance during cycling, surge currents and voltages during switching, and conducted and radiated emissions (EMI/EMC) due to increasingly higher switching frequencies.

Simulation can provide a significant impact on power electronics design and production.

Power Electronics Solutions

Electromagnetic Solution

3D and 2D quasi-static electromagnetic field simulations enable highly accurate models used to perform signal integrity analysis to study crosstalk, ground bounce, interconnect delays and ringing, and to accurately predict the performance of high-speed interconnects, filters, connectors, and PCBs.

Power Device Characterization

An embedded characterization tool for both power semiconductor and power module allows for integration of characterized power components into a drive system model and evaluation at different drive cycles.

Thermal Management

Electronics thermal management solutions leverage robust, automatic meshing to perform heat transfer and fluid flow simulation for convective and forced air cooling strategies. 

Reduced-Order Models

By creating a reduced-order model (ROM), changes can be made and analyzed in real-time simulations, decreasing simulation time by orders of magnitude.
