Jean-Sylvio NGOUA TEU, PhD – Power Electronics Research Engineer

I’m using PowerForge for several months now and I find it to be quite convenient in DC-AC and DC-DC converter pre-design phases.

The tool features a database including numerous semi-conductor components (discrete and modules), magnetic materials and film plastic capacitors from different manufacturers.

These libraries, which can evolve according to the user’s demands, allows for performance estimates (loss/efficiency, mass, volume, cost…) based on market-available references. Computation hypothesis are well explained too in the user guide, along with limitations of used models. The availability of a parametric comparison of solutions is also appreciable.

Finally, when in need, the team is available and pretty responsive.

The more I use PowerForge, the more it makes my tasks easier.

The part of this product that helped us a lot is on the DC/AC Inverter design with multi-parameter sweep function. It helped me understand key factors that influence the efficiency and power density of a power converter for my application, find the best output voltage to be used with an imposed DC-link voltage, and select the DC-link capacitor by clicking on the best design to quickly see all capacitor parameters.

Plotting, sorting methods etc. are very well done and convenient when looking for the optimal design with many tasks in parrallel.

PowerForge ANONYMOUS USER TESTIMONIAL

The development of new products is very expensive, which is not an asset for innovation. With PowerForge software, the engineer saves a lot of time; time that can be devoted more to innovation. Immediately we can visualize the losses of hundreds of transistors and the cost of thousands of power converters.

Romain Monthéard, PhD – Power Electronics Research Engineer

We started designing multilevel power converters a couple of years ago and immediately thought of using PowerForge in the early phases of our projects. It proved to be a very relevant and time-saving pre-design tool.

We definitely appreciate how quickly we are able to evaluate and compare different topologies and different configurations (eg number of levels and modulation techniques), sweep switching frequency ranges, etc. This gives us a very comprehensive view of the most critical parameters and helps us move in the right direction, in a snap. The output data and plots can be clearly displayed and make reporting easier.

Since we also carry extensive device characterization and modelling, the possibility to import our own semiconductor models in PowerForge is an important feature to us. The mass and volume estimation brings up useful information as well, especially when designing embedded power conversion systems.

Lakhdar Mamouri, PhD

Right after our first experiences with PowerForge, we were very surprised by the tool’s capabilities and features.

From the multi-sweep option, that allows to generate, compare and explore a multitude of DC / DC power converter solutions in a time record. The ability to study the impact of various parameters such as; semiconductors technology, passive components, frequency, etc. To the customizable graphics offering an easy comparison between the generated power converter solutions.

We also appreciated the fact that PowerForge uses cloud computing, thus allowing us to carry out several sizing in parallel. We have also appreciated the very professional qualities of the PowerForge team, and attention to feedback.

To finish, we just have to say that we definitely recommend the Powerforge tool.
