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.

Figure 1. Import PSIM Schematic in Typhoon Schematic Editor

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.
