Some of the videos might still refer to VisSim.
Brief overview of the simulation blockset of the Digital Power Designer. In this video we look into and analyze a selection of bocks used for simulation (Compensators, PWM simulation, Voltage Mode Control simulation, Buck Converter).
In this video we look into the tools we can use to select/tune the coefficients of a PID compensator. Users can calculate the digital coefficients from the analog component values or can tune the coefficients on the fly.
In this video we look into the details of the new block of the Digital Power Designer which lets user do a frequency response analysis.
In this video we simulate blocks of the Digital Power Designer which can be later used for Code Generation to download to a microcontroller. These blocks can be both simulated and be used for code generation without any alterations.
Introduction of Anthony Boon and overview of the series
Simulation of the control system in order to analyze the response of the buck converter in voltage mode control. The microcontroller peripherals which are needed are simulated using the peripheral simulation blocks of the Digital Power Designer.
The buck converter is simulated with the coeffiecients of the compensator being the inputs. This gives us the opportunity to better tune the coefficients based on the response of the converter.
We take the first step to control the actual converter. We run a hardware in the loop diagram in open loop.
We look into the design of the model for closed loop control of the buck converter and look into the compilation of the model with just 3 clicks.
