About HIL

Hardware in the loop (HIL) is a testing approach where parts of the power electronic test system are the actual, final, will-be-used in the field hardware. Typically this can be the power electronics controller. The HIL unit then simulates the power converter in real-time. This setup allows testing the real controller running the real software with a simulated power converter. Errors in the control don’t explode the power converter or cause long project delays. Electrical safety is also simplified when the high voltage power converter is simulated rather than running with a high current. The key question with HIL is around the accuracy of the power converter simulation.

OPAL-RT make real-time (RT) simulators for power electronics and power systems.

ELMG Digital Power has no formal partenership with OPAL-RT. We often help our customers with all types of real-time simulation issues.
