Transcript of Typhoon HIL602

  • The new, even more powerful HIL, with 32 analog outputs and Gigabit/s serial link. Tailored for the most demanding

    industrial test, verification, and pre-certification tasks.


    Typhoon HIL602.

  • HIL made for Power Electronics Engineers.

  • Typhoon HIL602.Deploy industrial grade ultra-high fidelity Hardware-in-the-Loop system

    for the most comprehensive power electronics controls test, verification, and pre-certification.

    ApplicationsTyphoon HIL602 real-time power electronics emulator is an ideal tool for development, test-ing, optimization, and quality assurance of grid connected converters (i.e. PV, wind, active fil-ter), automotive converters, electric propulsion drives, micro-grids, and industry automation.

    Easy to use software tool-chainUser friendly and intuitive software is easy to use and master, even for first time users. Build your models and perform sophisticated test scenarios, in the comfort of your office, in four simple steps:

    1. Define converter model in the schematic editor and compile circuit with one click.

    2. Run the model from the simulation control center and change sources, toggle contac-tors, load machines etc.

    3. Capture signals, zoom in, and explore the waveforms around critical events.

    4. Automate steps 1 to 3 via Python test scripts and let the HIL602 comprehensively test your controller around the clock.

    Control software development

    In this case, complete control software for cen-tralized PV inverter system, including four parallel MPPTconvertersisdeveloped,testedandqualifiedusing HIL. All the fast controller functionssuch asPWMmodulation,currentandvoltagecontrolloops, maximum power point tracking etc.as well as protection functions and high-level control functions (i.e. dynamic grid support) were tested and characterized using HIL. Control loop tuning and optimization was done on real controller platform interfaced with HIL602. MPPTcodewastestedandverifiedusingvariousillumination profiles (including partial shading) to confirmconvergencetoglobalmaximumpowerpoint of PV panel. In addition current harmonic content was measured to verify filter parameters.

    Testing and qualification

    HIL602,withitsdeepmemory1Msample/sec/channeland1MHzsampleratescope/capturefunction, up to 6 parallel computation cores, and 20 ns sampling resolution, provides the most comprehensive, high-fidelity HIL emulation envi-ronment. It is tailored for test and qualification of grid connected converter systems grid compliance including dynamic grid support. Automated test scripts cover test cases required forobtaininggridcompliancecertificates,i.e.BDEW.Automatedfaultinjectionprovidescom-prehensive environment for test and verification of control performance under grid faults (sags, dips, frequencydisturbances,overvoltages),compo-nent failures, and environmental conditions (i.e. solarillumination).Capturefunctionenablesde-tailed analysis of converter dynamics and analyti-cal verification of grid code compliance.
