    FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hello all,

    I am new to FPGA. I am looking for a book for Alterra FPGA which provides examples for DC-DC Converters and PWM examples of Sine PWM and Space Vector PWM.

    Thanks,

    Shomik Chakraborty.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hi,

    What has "sine PWM" to do with "DC-DC" converters?

    Klaus
    Please don´t contact me via PM, because there is no time to respond to them. No friend requests. Thank you.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hi,

    I am looking to learn about real time simulation of DC-DC converters as well as their control in experimental setup using FPGA. I am also looking to learn about implementation of modulation techniques for Inverters.

    Thanks,

    Shomik.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hello all,

    Can anyone please point me to some literature Alterra FPGA or Xilinx FPGA that explains real time simulation of some DC-DC converters.

    Please help me.

    Thankyou,

    Shomik Chakraborty.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    What do you mean specifically mean with real time simulation?

    The question isn't still completely clear. Are you asking about designing FPGA based DC-DC converter and inverter controllers and simulating the design, or using FPGAs as tool for speeding up simulation, e.g. with Matlab/Simulink.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    I am looking to learn about real time simulation of DC-DC converters
    as well as their control in experimental setup using FPGA
    I am also looking to learn about implementation of modulation techniques for Inverters.
    As per my understanding, the above 3 qualify as separate questions.
    Only the 2nd one is valid in this sub-forum.

    I did a quick search using the phrase "DC-DC converter control using FPGA". You can do the same and find out if the results meet your requirement.
    .....yes, I do this for fun!

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hi.

    Thank you for the response. I am sorry for the confusion. What I meant by real time simulation was simulating the operation of a DC DC converter in FPGA.

    Thanks.

    Shomik

    This is kind of like saying I want to grow oranges using apples.

    An FPGA isn't a simulation device, it's a logic device (a digital logic device). A DC-DC converter is an analog circuit. And simulations are normally done using a computer.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Adding to #8, the controlling of the DC-DC converter can however be done through an FPGA.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    simulating the operation of a DC DC converter in FPGA
    Makes no particular sense without additional explanation.

    - Which part/function of a DC-DC converter do you want to simulate?
    - What kind of simulation (digital logic, power circuit, control loop)?
    - Intended simulation tools?

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Hello,

    Thanks for the replies. As you can see I am completely new. I am just now starting on FPGA. I do not have any of the answers and only questions. So instead of disturbing the forum members at every turn I am looking for a good starting point, a good book or maybe even some lecture notes, which will bring me up to a level where I can ask meaningful questions.

    Thank you all,

    Shomik.

    Re: FPGA Book for real time simulation of DC-DC converters

    Your question is touching at least three different topics as FPGA programming, power electronics, digital or analog simulation. There are many books about each topic. It would be helpful if you can specify your field of interest more clearly.
