MagNet Plug-in for PSIM®

The MagNet Plug-in for PSIM enables co-simulation capabilities between PSIM (from Powersim Inc.) and MagNet.

The voltage and current signals of PSIM are transferred to MagNet (and vice versa) during the co-simulation process. This constant data exchange links the two models and produces interdependent multi-domain results.

Quick and Easy Setup

From PSIM, the MagNet file of the device is selected. A block element is created with input and output ports which are used for connecting the circuit's signals to the device's coils. The setup options include:

  • MagNet time step value
  • MagNet solver to use
  • Saving of the MagNet solution (for further post processing)

Allowing separate time step values for PSIM and MagNet significantly reduces the co-simulation time without affecting the accuracy of the results.

Co-simulations of both the control circuit and the electric machine take into account:

  • Eddy currents and material non-linearity
  • Mechanical movement
  • Complex drive and control circuits
