Modeling a TVS Diode voltage-current behavior in Plecs

0 votes

Is it possible to implement an accurate diode behavioral model in Plecs? I am looking something similar to the Simscape Electrical Diode model ( which implements the diode current/voltage behavior with voltage clamping. I think it should possible with the electrical algebraic component but I can't find good examples. I would to implement a bidirectional current model. (Matlab example is unidirectional)

Have you looked at the Two Stage LED Driver demo model in the PLECS library? The LED component (right side of the schematic) is a masked subsystem that implements the diode V-I curve using a lookup table and a controlled current source. Would this meet your needs?
