With Web-Based Simulation (WBS) you can share PLECS models online with a wide audience. The model above shows a boost converter simulated with WBS. Models are developed offline with an ordinary PLECS license and then uploaded onto a simulation server. These models can be embedded in any web page. WBS requires a separate license and is typically used for the following purposes:
As a component manufacturer you can demonstrate the performance of your products in a specific application. Help the engineer to quickly select the optimum components.
Make visiting your web site an interactive and efficient experience. Decide what parameters the user can change, such as load behaviors, component ratings, or control schemes. Point the web page visitor to the important aspects of your circuit. The simulation results are visualized with waveforms and data tables. The visitor can compare the effect of parameter variations directly.
Any visitor of your web page can immediately start a simulation without the hassle of installing software or logging on. He will quickly get an overview of using your components in his application. PLECS WBS is a great way to present the performance of your products to a large number of people.
PLECS WBS is a powerful tool for teaching. Lecturers can share PLECS models with their students to demonstrate the working principle of a circuit. Selected converter topologies are already available at the Plexim Academy. By obtaining a PLECS WBS license you can set up your own simulation server to present any model you have designed.
PLECS Web Server License
PLECS licenses are typically tied to a combination of your personal login name and the 12-character hexadecimal MAC address of the local area network (LAN) ethernet card in your computer.
You can obtain this information from within PLECS application (both PLECS Standalone & PLECS Blockset) as follows:
- Select "PLECS License Manager" from the menu "Help" in the schematic editor.
- Click "Get HostID...."
- Click "Copy to clipboard" to copy the text to your system clipboard so that you can conveniently paste it (e.g. into an email or a web form.)
The price includes freight but tax exclusive. The relevant import costs and VAT are paid by the recipient.
