“The addition of Powersim’s technologies and experienced technical team, who have deep domain knowledge in power electronics, rounds out Altair’s offerings for electric motor design and many other applications,” said founder and CEO of Altair James R. Scapa.
The flagship product of Maryland-based Powersim is its PSIM software for simulating power electronics, including power supplies, motor drives, control systems and microgrids. Altair says PSIM “delivers unbeatable simulation speed while producing accurate system-level results, empowers easy implementation, including embedded code generation and seamless adoption in any environment, and provides robust system-level design and simulation for various industrial applications.”
Altair plans to integrate PSIM into its Flux and FluxMotor design software, its Embed tool for embedded code generation and its SimLab software for combined cooling and thermal analysis.
“Powersim has established a powerful solution that has proven to reduce development costs and time-to-market for thousands of customers around the globe including major companies in the automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics and industrial applications sectors,” said Scapa.
