P1821 - Guide for Usage of Design Tools for Power Electronic Building Blocks (PEBB) and PEBB Based Systems

The purpose of this guide is to present several aspects of modeling and simulation for PEBB block design, utilization and system integration. One aspect covers multi-physics tools for determining parasitic components, EMI analysis and thermal specification. Another aspect considers the performance analysis of the PEBB block as a component of the larger host network. The guide also addresses emerging approaches of model driven specification which are of importance in rapidly specifying the PEBB block size and structure to achieve the desired system level performance.The scope of this guide is to characterize modeling approaches and simulation tools for the design and system integration of Power Electronic Building Blocks (PEBB). This guide is applicable to power electronics in areas such as Custom Power, Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS), High Voltage DC Transmission (HVDC), Distributed Generation and Energy Storage applications. These range in power levels from hundreds of kW to thousands of MW, but with emphasis on the 1 MW to hundreds of MW.
