Paper Abstract

In the design of Power Electronics converters, several approaches can be chosen for the implementation of the closed loop control. The use of a digital control loop implemented in a FPGA is becoming quite common. For the design of such a system, a simulation environment must be provided to check the digital and analog part working together. The simulation of both the analog and digital part is a very difficult task, which involves the simultaneous usage of an analog and a digital simulator, or the use of a mixed signal simulator. In this paper, we present a method to perform mixed signal simulation. The simulation is performed by linking PSIM analog simulator and ModelSim digital simulator. This method has proven to be very effective in the design of digital control circuits for power converters, implemented in FPGAs.
