How SIMPLIS Periodic Operating Point (POP) Works


Previously Held on Apr 28th, 2016

The SIMPLIS POP analysis finds the periodic steady-state operating point of a circuit and is one of the most powerful features of SIMPLIS. To find the steady-state operating point, POP runs a sequence of transient simulations on your circuit, constantly refining the initial conditions between simulations. This one hour webinar will cover how to setup the POP analysis on a DC/DC converter, the core POP process, analysis parameters and common POP errors.
