MODELICA - Electric Power Library

Rapidly model, simulate and analyze electric power systems including DC, single and three phase AC systems. Design and optimize power generation, power transmission and power electronics systems while accelerating the development and verification of their control systems.

Modeling of Power Systems

The Modelica based Electric Power Library can be used for simulation of steady state and transient operation of power systems. A particular advantage is the ability to model the complete power plant from the energy source like oil, gas, hydro-power and wind, all the way through to generation and power grid distribution to the end consumer. This is possible due to the powerful multi-domain modeling capability provided by Modelica.

Simulate Multi-domain Systems

The library provides standardized interfaces to the thermal and mechanical domains and can easily be combined with components from other libraries to represent electric power and actuation, is ideal for control systems design and supports different reference frame representations. Applications include e-mobility, cooling, electric power plants and grids, hybrid vehicles, marine power plant for ships and offshore installations. Key features include:

  • Rapid modeling and simulation of power electronics, mechanics and thermal dynamics in a single model environment.
  • Transient and steady state simulations.
  • Easily integrated into any application domain.
  • Single phase AC and DC.
  • Three phase AC with multiple representations available (abc, dq0, dq).

Integrate Multiple Engineering Disciplines

The Electric Power Library is part of the powerful CATIA Systems Engineering solution. The library can be used with both Dymola and CATIA V6 Dynamic Behavior Modeling, either on its own or with other Modelica Libraries, to model and simulate complex systems that can span multiple engineering disciplines.

Benefits
  • Accurate simulation results that better depict reality as more integrated electric systems models can be built.
  • Revolutionary new solutions for the efficient modeling and simulation of complex power electronic systems.
  • Optimize performance with a wide range of components resulting in significant cost and time reductions in designing electric power systems.
