Simscape Electrical

Semiconductor Devices

Examine switching-level characteristics, losses, system-level behavior, and thermal effects. Convert SPICE subcircuit netlists for discretes to Simscape components.

Motors and Drivers

Design controllers and verify the impact of nonlinearities and heat on the design. Import parameters from a database or finite element analysis to match real component behavior.

Power Networks

Analyze grid-level behavior in networks with renewables, power electronics, and drives. Use load flow analyses to determine steady-state conditions and FFTs to analyze power quality.

Fault Tolerance

Minimize losses, equipment downtime, and costs by validating design under fault conditions.  Verify circuit components are operating within their safe operating area.

Virtual Testing

Verify system behavior under conditions that cannot be easily tested with hardware prototypes. Run sets of tests in parallel on a multicore workstation or a cluster.

Model Deployment

Convert your Simscape model to C code to test control algorithms. Run HIL tests on dSPACE®, Speedgoat, OPAL-RT, and other real-time systems before performing physical tests.

Simscape Platform

Test integration of electrical, thermal, mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic systems in a single environment. Identify integration issues and optimize system-level performance.

MATLAB and Simulink

Use MATLAB to automate tasks such as model assembly, testing, and post-processing. Use Simulink to integrate control algorithms and hardware design in a single environment.

From Research To Production

Simscape models help you refine requirements, design control systems, test embedded controllers, and support in-service operation as a digital twin.

“With Simulink and Simscape Electrical, I don’t have to write more code to numerically solve systems of equations. I build the custom blocks, connect them graphically, and let the solver do its work. The NASA engineers I work with like the Simscape models, because the models are more intuitive than low-level code.”
