Powerex Launches PowerSim App for Android

August 26, 2012 by Jeff Shepard

Created for the Android, the new PowerSim™ app from Powerex can be used to calculate power losses and temperature rises of Powerex power semiconductors in 2-level, 3-phase inverters, based on operating conditions provided by the user. The App allows users to easily calculate the semiconductor power losses of their 3-phase inverter.

The program’s main purpose is to aid in device selection and performance validation as well as provide a starting point for a system’s thermal design. The data and algorithms used may be subject to change without prior notice. The results of the application are not intended to match real world results with 100% accuracy, only to provide an estimated outcome.

The iPhone version of this app is under development.
