With PowerForge, professors and students can:

  • Compare different components and materials
    Select and compare the components or materials from libraries. PowerForge also allows professors & students to add their own semi-conductors.
  • Benchmark topologies: 2-level and multilevel
    2-Level architecture and multi-level topologies (T-type, NPC, Flying Capacitor,...) are available in PowerForge. PowerForge offers the choice between three modulations strategies (Sinus, Third Harmonic Injection and Space Vector) with two different carrier dispositions (PD and APOD).
  • Explore different solutions for power converter design & evaluate their performances
    Mass, Volume, Loss, Cost and more Key Performance Indicators are automatically calculated for two bidirectional conversion stages (non isolated DC/DC converter and 3-phase DC/AC inverter) for 10kW and beyond.
  • Sweep automatically parameters
    The automated switching frequency sweep allows the user to generate design solutions for a chosen power converter architecture, semi-conductor,… on a defined range (with start, end and step frequencies).
  • Compare the results with parameter graphs
    PowerForge offers customisable graphic options with filters. PowerForge allows graphs generation by users and offers filtering tools for trade-off identification.
  • Export solutions to third-party software
    PowerForge offers a connexion with the standard software & tools used in the industry (PSIM, Plecs, excel…).
