This file contains a model of an aircraft power network built in Simscape Electrical. It contains a half-aircraft network consisting of one generator, an AC network, a Transformer Rectifier Unit connecting to a DC network. The model can be used to determine power requirements, analyze system interactions, and perform harmonic analysis. Running the model in phasor mode enables entire flight cycles to be tested. Models and MATLAB code show how to refine system requirements, estimate parameters based on measured data, distribute simulations using parallel computing, and automatically generating reports.

where is THD-Calculate?

Katy Zita

Thank you so much for this example.
I was wondering where is that file called THD_calculate.m I am new to Matlab/Simulink and aslo new in power systems, and I wanted to have a look at the script. Is it inside the zip file? Thank you
