    Abstract

    This paper presents a modular transient modelling tool which provides model-based support for the design and technology selection within future MEE and MEA electrical systems. The developed tool is a Matlab/Simulink library consisting of functional sub-system units, which can be rapidly integrated to build complex system architecture models. The paper focusses on the ability of the tool to assess the thermally-defined fault withstand capability of power electronic converters in order to inform on technology trades and derive the operating requirements of the associated power system protection/fault management devices.
