dv/dt Simulation

System designers often use rules of thumb based on cable length when determining installation of dv/dt filters. However, if the system voltage waveforms are simulated, the voltage rise times and peak voltages at the motor terminals can be determined much more accurately.

Use the Motor Voltage Waveform Simulation Tool on this site to simulate the voltage response at the motor terminals of a motor, cable, and drive system to learn about over-voltage or dv/dt issues in different applications.
