Abstract

The objective of this paper is time and frequency response analysis of single quadrant and two-quadrant power amplifiers byusing MATLAB SIMULINK, PSPICE and PSIM based software used in the electromagnetic levitation system. The power amplifierplays a key role in controlling the electromagnetic levitation system, controlling the current as well as the force betweenelectromagnet and rail. Here the power amplifier is used to convert a fixed DC voltage to an adjustable DC output voltage.Different kinds of power amplifiers have been proposed for the electromagnetic levitation system. In this paper, only buck andasymmetrical converters are simulated in the simulation software. The exciting current of the electromagnet is controlled bythe power amplifier, which controls the air gap and force between actuator and rail in a closed loop manner. PSPICE is ananalog and digital circuit simulation software. PSIM is a general-purpose analog and digital electronic circuit simulator. It isalso used for simulation and design software for power electronics, motor drives, and dynamic system simulation. SIMULINKis the graphic user interface software from MATLAB which helped us prepare the model of the various power systems, powerelectronics and control system.
