SimPowerSystems from MathWorks supports model sharing via Simscape, adds access to SimPowerSystems models and analyses.MathWorks has announced a new version of SimPowerSystems that offers a stronger connection to Simscape and other physical modeling products in the Simulink family. With new capabilities such as support for the Simscape Editing Mode, SimPowerSystems 5.5 now offers engineers the ability to share models of electrical power systems with all other Simscape users.

SimPowerSystems lets engineers model and simulate electrical power systems in Simulink for automotive, aerospace, defense, and industrial applications. Models can connect to other models built using Simscape and other domain-specific add-on products, such as SimMechanics and SimHydraulics.  This helps engineers to detect integration issues between electrical, mechanical, and control systems early in the development process before any physical hardware is built.

Key new capabilities include:

• Interface elements to connect SimPowerSystems and Simscape circuits, enabling engineers to extend SimPowerSystems models to other physical domains and create custom physical modeling components using the Simscape language.
• Support for Simscape editing mode, allowing all other Simscape users to work with SimPowerSystems models, including viewing, simulating, changing numerical parameters, and generate C code from the model.
