Establish the Simulation Circuit
Using PSIM, create the simulation of the Forward Converter as shown in Figure 1. Focus for
now on finding the correct components from the PSIM elements, and making the correct circuit
connections. The simulation will be validated in stages as the lab proceeds.
Setup an appropriate Time Step in the Simulation Control Block. Remember that the converter
is required to switch at 1 kHz, the simulation should be able to accurately represent 1% changes
in the duty cycle, and it is typical to allow for at least 100 calculation steps for each percentage
change in the duty cycle.
The simulation Total Time should be set long enough to get a stable steady-state operation
without initial condition effects. You may need to adjust this time as your simulation
