Import PSIM Schematic files

This section describes how to successfully import a PSIM model in Typhoon Schematic editor, what the requirements are and which components are supported.

Figure 1Import PSIM Schematic files is importing the power stage part of a PSIM model to Typhoon schematic file. Controller part of a PSIM model is not imported. List of the compatible components can be found in PSIM - Typhoon compatible components.In order to successfully load a PSIM file a vPSIM12.0.3 or later should be installed with a valid licence file.

If Import to PSIM option is used for the first time, a path to the PSIM install folder needs to be selected as shown in figure. Once the folder is selected, the path will be remembered by Typhoon Schematic Editor..

Figure 2: Select PSIM folder

Every next time the import option is will ask only for a .psimsch file, which is the extension of PSIM schematic files. This is presented in figure below.

Figure 3: Select PSIM schematic file

Once the PSIM file is selected, an automatic three step process is started. First the PSIM software is started in the background and a psimsch file is converted to a xml net-list file. During this step validation of PSIM license is verified. Second step is conversion of the xml file to Typhoon Schematic file - tse. Once these wo steps are completed an pop up message shown in Figure will appear. Third step is opening the tse file.
