    I need to control thyristor (SCR) using a circuit which has a pulse transformer. Does any one know how to use a pulse transformer in PSIM? I have searched pulse transformer in PSIM but no luck. There were only general transformers. Any idea how to use it from the library of PSIM or is there any other alternative way to do so.

    Thanks in advance.

    Coupled inductors where you get to specify the coupling constant as well as other parasitic parameters.

    Thanks for your reply. Can you please elaborate? I have attached the circuit for you.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was refering to LTSpice which does not have a transformer component. I thought PSIM might be similar. The basic idea is to take two separate inductor symbols and "couple" them together with a simple text string that specifies the coupling constant. You can also add parasitic elements like series resistance and shunt capacitance and build a transformer model from the ground up. It looks like you have a transformer symbol so now it is just a matter of matching as many properties as you can.
