IGBT's in PSIM and Multisim 7

Hello!

Just signed up for this, my bf has been ranting and raving about it forever!

Short Intro:
Senior at Wayne State University (Detroit)...LAST ECE class! Power Electronics. Bad teacher, ridiculous class structure...you know the jist.

Doing a project for this class which is becoming completely self taught. Design an active power filter for load compensation.

So far I think I'm doing okay. I have a the demo version of PSIM, which has IGBT's that look the way I am familiar with them looking:

(not that entire thing, but the switch in parralell with the diode)

The thing is that the PSIM demo wont run a simulation with a certain amount of elements and I havent been able to get ahold of anyone at the company to buy it. So I think im going to use Multisim 7 which I have a full version of.

Multisim 7 shows the IGBT component as something similar to:

My question:

Are these two things equivelent?

Does anyone have any suggestions to make this work if they are not?

Thank you!!!
Crystal

Can you post the models for each? You can tell how close they are by the underlying text model parameters for each. Welcome to PF, BTW.
