    I need help in designing and simulating a circuit on PSIM/Matlab/PSpice for a simple DC motor going forward/stop/reverse using a 12Vdc source

    My application is a power window DC motor controlled by up/neutral/down window switch - any tips/ideas?

    You need an H-bridge on each side of the motor.

    There are many such circuits in IC form out there.

    Do you need to design it using discrete components, or ICs?

    BTW - is this a homework assignment for a course?
