I'm trying to do a "simple" setup of charging a capacitor in Simulink.
I'd like to figure out how to limit the current the DC Voltage Supply can source.
  • Power source 1kV at 1 Watt
  • 1uF capacitor in series with 2k Ohm Resistor
  • Plot time vs. voltage of capacitor from 0V to 900 V

Hi Bryan, you can do this easily is Simscape, though you will have to use a controlled voltage source instead. AD

Interesting, I will give that a try! I was hoping to just start after the DC/DC converter to avoid adding extra "unnecessary" complexity.
EDIT: I can't get it to work. I found a current limiter block, but I can't seem to get it to work either. Could this current limiter block be the way to solve my problem if I could implement it properly?
