Abstract

Decision support power electronic systems design software D.E. Macpherson, E. Amarnath Reddy Department of Electrical Engineering, King's Buildings, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH9 3JL, UK ABSTRACT Expert Systems, a branch of Artificial Intelligence, have great potential in applications such as the design of Power Electronic Systems, where considerable expertise in exploring complex and tedious tasks is required. Faster design times and a more efficient design are among the advantages that can be achieved using an Expert System based design.. This paper describes the design and development of Decision Support Power Electronic Systems Design Software (DPDS) to assist the design of Switched Mode Power Supplies developed using wxCLJPS, an expert system development tool. Extensive knowledge bases covering the various design rules of power supplies are built into the DPDS, which is also linked to a SPICE simulator and other utilities such as Database
