Software packages

A diverse range of specialised software is used extensively in our research, both to design circuits, components and systems and also as part of our experimental test systems. Our software covers four main areas: circuit simulators, rapid control platform software, finite element analysis software and CAD packages. 

Our current software suite includes:

Circuit simulators

  • Synopsys SABER
  • Plexim PLECS
  • DIgSILENT
  • PSCAD/EMTDC

Rapid control platform software

  • dSPACE control desk
  • Applied Dynamics International (ADI) AdVantage VI, DE and SimPlotter
  • NI LabView real-time

Finite element (FE) software

  • Cobham Opera
  • Finite Element Method Magnetics (FEMM)

CAD design packages

  • AutoCAD
  • VAriCAD
