MathWorks has released a new version of SimPowerSystems, which offers a stronger connection to Simscape and other physical products in the Simulink family.
With new capabilities such as support for the Simscape Editing Mode, SimPowerSystems 5.5 now offers engineers the ability to share models of electrical power systems with all other Simscape users.
SimPowerSystems lets engineers model and simulate electrical power systems in Simulink for automotive, aerospace, defence, and industrial applications. SimPowerSystems models can connect to models built using Simscape and other domain-specific add-on products, such as SimMechanics and SimHydraulics. This helps engineers to detect integration issues between electrical, mechanical, and control systems early in the development process before any physical hardware is built.
