Steven VanWerkhoven is the Director of Software Development at Scheinder Electric. He runs all the teams for power electronics controls, firmware, and software development and lifecycle maintenance - in short, the teams that develop everything that goes inside of Schneider Electric’s hybrid residential inverters.


In this interview, you will learn:

  • The main challenges of inverter control design, development, testing, and certification.
  • How does a C-HIL setup look like for hybrid inverter control testing.
  • How can test automation speed up inverter software update verification.
  • How can HIL speed up product development while improving product robustness and quality.

Product Spotlight Q&A - HIL606 Blog 3

 

Dusan Majstorovic is the Chief Technology Officer at Typhoon HIL, and it is his role to oversee all technology and product development activities. He was involved in the development of Typhoon HIL’s solutions from the very beginning, mainly in the area of real-time devices and the programmable FPGA software approach that were pioneered in the early days of the company. In this blog, he will introduce to us the new HIL606 real-time device, the first 4th Generation HIL in the 6-series hardware device line.

Success Story: AVL List validates their E-Storage test equipment with HIL

Posted by Debora Santo on Dec 23, 2020 5:48:00 PM

Case Studies - AVL E-Storage (3)

Story Summary

  • AVL List GmbH uses Typhoon HIL test solutions in the agile development, prototyping, testing, and maintenance of firmware and hardware versions of their e-Storage BTE product portfolio.

  • AVL e-Storage BTE can act as a battery tester and battery emulator for testing and validating batteries, e-motors, and inverters in early development phases.

  • C-HIL reduces firmware development and testing time, and as a result speeds up the time-to market-for new features by enabling automated testing through all product variant cases.

  • HIL in one word: Agile.

What is the challenge? 

The electric power systems are going through a transition that encompass digitalization, decentralization, and decarbonization. This will lead to more resilient power grids due to higher adoption of digital technologies, renewable power sources, and new battery storage systems. Everyone will benefit from the enhanced control, efficiency, and maintenance capabilities, but it all has to start from smart test-driven design. There is a need for integrated solutions to improve power system performance which will be data-based, so the systems are built with the end specs in mind and thoroughly tested throughout all possible test scenarios in an automated manner.
