Advanced SIMPLIS Training Course(SIMPLIS 師資訓練班)


The first two days of the class will cover the following topics:

  • l  How to create SIMPLIS models that run fast and quickly find the Periodic Operating Point
  • l  How to parameterize a SIMPLIS model and how to create a custom Edit Dialog
  • l  Methods to create time-domain models for critical power stage components (MOSFETs, drivers, rectifiers, inductors, and transformers)
  • l  Fundamentals for modeling control circuits
  • l  Essential details for conducting a comprehensive analysis of power supply performance
  • l  Techniques for measuring time domain waveforms and AC analyses such as Bode plots, input and output impedance

The SIMPLIS Design Verification Module (DVM) is covered in depth on the third day. The DVM module automates testing, the collection of scalar and graph data, and generates an HTML report with links to the simulated data. In addition, predicting the interaction between MOSFET driver limitations and losses in power MOSFETs will be covered on the third day.

This course makes extensive use of hands-on exercises that are central to the training experience. Every student will be provided with access to a SIMetrix/SIMPLIS Pro license with DVM during the three-day class.


  • l  Engineers with modest to significant experience using SIMPLIS to design switching power supplies
  • l  Experienced users of SIMPLIS will benefit significantly from this advanced course
