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