Advances in solid-state power electronics enable engineers to develop equipment that modulates and converts higher power ranges than ever before. When developing power electronics applications, engineers are often faced with challenges in modelling and analysing the behaviour of diverse electronic components as well as in analysing the performance of the full system when in combination with the associated control algorithms. In this session, MathWorks engineers demonstrate how a power converter as well as a voltage regulator can be modelled and analysed efficiently using the physical modelling approach with Simulink, Simscape™, and SimPowerSystems™. You will learn how you can use the tools to quickly design and verify controllers along with the physical models of plants in a single environment.
Gernot Schraberger is the industry marketing manager for industrial automation and machinery in Europe, based in MathWorks Munich office. In this role, he is responsible for identifying industry trends and possible market opportunities. Using his experience as a former senior application engineer, he helps to broaden the adoption of Model-Based Design in the IAM segment. Prior to joining MathWorks, Gernot held a development engineering position for drive engineering at Siemens, focusing on designing advanced control strategies for high dynamic positioning drives and embedded software engineering. Gernot holds a master equivalent (Dipl.Ing.) degree in automation engineering from the Technical University of Munich, Germany.
