In the 1992 Power Electronics Specialists Conference, the authors presented electrical design inspection (EDI) as a methodology for using circuit simulation in the design and development of electronic power supplies. This presentation in the 3rd IEEE Workshop on Computers in Power Electronics is a follow-up to that work. They discuss various aspects of the EDI methodology that have not been addressed in the cited paper, with special emphasis on device modeling and software implementation. Finally, they present new results of applying the EDI methodology to a 150 W DC-DC power converter with voltage mode control, operating at 500 kHz.
