Portunus is a system simulator that has been
developed especially for the calculation of
mechatronic systems. Possible applications
range from the simulation of drive systems
and switched mode power supplies to investigation of the heating of electronic
Several description approaches (network,
block diagram, state machine) are available
for the simulation of electrical, mechanical
and thermal systems. With Portunus you
may run different analysis types (simulations
in the time and frequency domain, calculation
of steady-state and operating point). The
effect of parameter variations may be calculated and displayed automatically.
Alternatively, it can be visualized using the interactive capabilities of the software.
Portunus comes with a comprehensive model library which
already includes simulation models of common electrical
machines and power electronic topologies. The available
interfaces expand the functionality of Portunus, e.g.
to provide the possibility of the validation of
microcontroller source code.
And ergonomic graphical user interface allows the
comfortable description of the system to be modelled.
The implemented sub-sheet technology makes it possible
to separate sub-systems and therefore improve the
clarity of the system representation.
Portunus is not only the ideal tool for the development
of new products; it provides exciting opportunities for
education and training purposes as well.
