Typhoon HIL wins ESTCP contract to aid DOD with the future of microgrid design

 

The provision of secure, reliable, and resilient energy and water is critical to ensuring mission execution at our military installations. Over the last 8 years, the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) – DoD's environmental technology demonstration and validation program – has deployed innovative technologies designed to improve energy security, increase backup power reliability, and support critical loads during extended electrical grid outages. One of the most promising technologies in this sector is microgrids. These systems can reduce operating costs behind the meter and generate revenue by providing services to utilities and/or participating in energy markets.

Story Highlights

  • Application: Fuji Electric’s Kobe site uses the Typhoon HIL platform for their Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) development.
  • Challenge: To overcome the typical limitations of open-loop and offline simulations in the early product testing stage, as well as the limitations of the high-power tests in the late product testing stage.
  • Solution: The adoption of controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) made it easy to develop and debug new control software functionality, as well as verify the operation in cases that are difficult to reproduce in a high-power lab.
  • Result: Typhoon HIL reduced the time and cost of UPS control development and increased test coverage.
  • HIL Tested means quick reliable results with lower costs and higher flexibility.
