SIMPLIS Magnetics Design Module

For inductors, SIMPLIS MDM is accessible using the new Level 2 model of the Multi-Level Lossy PWL Inductor.

MDM provides a new window with an intuitive GUI to build an inductor by selecting a core material, core shape and size, wire material, wire shape and size, bobbin, and number of turns. The user can select standard sizes from the catalogue or define custom sizes.

Using the B-H curves of the selected material stored in MDM's database, a reluctance model of the defined core and an accurate 3D model of the airgaps, a PWL inductance for the inductor is calculated and used in the SIMPLIS circuit simulation.
