0 votes
Hey Guys,

 I m an doing a simulation and it come the fault:"Cyclic behavior during swithing, Switches that bounced". I tried to figure out this problem by Tightening the relative tolerance of the solver (from 1e-3 to 1e-5 or 1e-6) and it doesn t work. Did someone experiences this fault? and how do u solve it?


Thanks in advance

Hi Christi,

Have you reviewed the guidance from the Plexim website?  Please see the following link:

In some cases the actual solution might be more involved and requires a detailed understanding of your controller and switching topology.  For example, the detailed guidance given in this previous forum post.
