Model and simulate electrical power systems

SimPowerSystems provides component libraries and analysis tools for modeling and simulating electrical power systems. The libraries offer models of electrical power components, including three-phase machines, electric drives, and components for applications such as flexible AC transmission systems (FACTS) and renewable energy systems. Harmonic analysis, calculation of total harmonic distortion (THD), load flow, and other key electrical power system analyses are automated.

SimPowerSystems models can be used to develop control systems and test system-level performance. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB® variables and expressions, and design control systems for your electrical power system in Simulink®. You can add mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and other components to the model using Simscape and test them together in a single simulation environment. To deploy models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, SimPowerSystems supports C-code generation.

SimPowerSystems was developed in collaboration with Hydro-Québec of Montreal.
