You can use SimPowerSystems to teach how theory relates to electrical network behavior. Students can analyze large and complex systems, and the simulation results from SimPowerSystems simulations give students a better understanding of what can happen in a true electrical network. To demonstrate how effects such as hysteresis influence the electrical system represented by your SimPowerSystems model, you can implement equations for these effects in the Simscape language.
Using simulation, students can prototype in a virtual environment, which encourages them to try out new designs and to explore the entire parameter space. Simulation enables them to optimize their designs in research projects and student competitions.
Because SimPowerSystems is used widely across industries such as automotive, aerospace, and robotics, graduating students who have experience with this multibody simulation tool are in demand by employers.
