Currently there are no computer-aided-design (CAD) tools dedicated to the design and synthesis of power electronic circuits. The design process has not been formalized, and most of the effort in computer aid has been oriented towards simulation, neglecting other stages of the design process that can also benefit from the use of computer tools. This paper present an outline of the structure of an automated power electronics design CAD tool. The different parts of this tool are described along with the problems that make them difficult or interesting. Current progress in the development of some of those part is also presented.
