High performance hardware-in-the-loop simulators for testing power electronics control systems are now available from MDL Technologies following a distribution agreement with manufacturers Typhoon HIL.
The new Typhoon HIL402 is a notebook sized HIL emulator offering ultra-high fidelity, real-time simulation. It enables engineers to design, test and verify controllers and control systems for applications such as smart inverters, micro-grids and battery storage systems, as well as hybrid and fully electric automotive powertrains.
The HIL402 is designed to simplify work in all stages of the control development, from prototyping, through verification, all the way to fine-tuning of the production-ready controller.
With a 1µs real-time simulation time step, 20ns pulse width modulation sampling time and ultra-low latency, this HIL instrument is said to set a new standard for ultra-high fidelity real-time emulation of power electronics systems.
