How to add your own components in PowerForge?

Video Tutorial


In this tutorial, you will learn how to add your own components in PowerForge.
Power electronics design engineers may have to use their own semi-conductors (IGBT, MOSFET SiC…) when developing power converters. PowerForge allows designers to do just that by offering high flexibility to the engineers!
In this video, you will learn how to add your custom reference in our software and how to use it in the power converter solutions you are developing. Thanks to this functionality, you will be able to benchmark the performances of different power switch references compared to your own components.
You will be able to evaluate the impact of your custom references on your designs by comparing their mass, volume, cost, efficiency to other components.
Note: Once added in PowerForge, the reference will only be accessible to you and to the persons you have authorized (see the access right management feature).
