Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing for Power Electronics Control Design

Power electronics control systems are essential parts of electric-based transportation and renewable energy systems. This growing demand calls for more efficient, higher-performance electric motors which in return are driving the need for more sophisticated power electronics control systems and the embedded software that enables them. Adopting wide-bandgap semiconductor materials bringing faster switching frequencies further augments the challenge of developing embedded software for these systems. To address these challenges engineers increasingly implement real-time testing with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.

Learn the key considerations and get practical tips for conducting power electronics control hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing using Simulink® and Speedgoat real-time target machines.
