Rare-earth-free EV motors blog

Permanent magnet (PM) motors, using heavy rare-earth elements like Neodymium, Terbium, and Dysprosium, have been the go to choice for electric vehicle (EV) motors due to their efficiency and power density. However, complex extraction processes and limited supply chains have led to price volatility. To overcome these challenges, the e-Mobility industry is increasingly focusing on developing rare-earth-free electric motors. These motors aim to achieve higher speed, power density, and voltage at a lower cost, reducing reliance on rare-earth elements and promoting a sustainable future for electric transportation, and real-time simulation and testing tools solutions Typhoon HIL aid their development.

AHV Hero

The latest developments in the X-ray medical imaging help improve diagnostic capabilities while reducing costs. X-ray generators need to keep up with the challenges imposed by new semiconductor and software technologies. Time and complexity of a “full-digital” X-ray generator development are significantly reduced by using HIL instead of a complex setup of X-ray tubes, high voltage sources, power loads and banks of various instruments, leading to faster development and innovation in the field.

Marine blog HERO IMAGE (1)

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on making marine power systems more energy efficient and green. One way to achieve this is through hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, a technique that allows engineers to validate control algorithms for optimization of efficient energy use and that supports the integration of various distributed energy resources (DERs) into a well-functioning whole. Read this blog to learn more from our demonstrations on how the challenges of making greener marine microgrids can be addressed with digital twins and HIL real-time simulation.

Communication is often an afterthought when designing or deploying new distributed energy resource (DER) projects. In practice, though, these communication issues can make or break integration projects when deployed to the energy grid. See how HIL Compatible devices together with model-based system engineering (MBSE) can be used to safely validate communication and control issues prior to system deployment with real hardware, and drastically simplify the integration and commissioning process of new renewables, microgrids, and virtual power plants (VPPs).
