Blog 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.

Spotlight Q&A - Hitachi ABB Power Grid (final)

 

Blog Highlights

  • Hitachi Energy Power Grids need to integrate various DERs and control multiple loads in a complex system environment.

  • Before HIL, Software in the Loop was used to develop control algorithms but a system using real controllers was needed to ensure the system works.
  • Controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) gives grid flexibility and adaptability to cover many test cases at an appropriate fidelity.
  • C-HIL can be used from the early design phase all the way into operational performance and customer demonstration with factory acceptance testing.
  • For microgrids with BESS and solar PV, the seamless transition from grid-connected to islanded mode was demonstrated using C-HIL.
  • “HIL Tested” for Hitachi ABB Power Grids means great performance.

Topics: Microgrids, BESS, Case Study

 

Highlights

  • Typhoon HIL solutions enable Hitachi Energy Power Grids to push the limits of testing product functionality to cover customer needs throughout the entire product lifecycle.

  • Software in the Loop (SIL) supports the development of individual algorithms but a higher fidelity testing environment is needed to ensure the system works as a whole.
  • Controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) is a combination of real hardware controllers interfaced with a real-time simulation of the power system.

  • Standard models in the Typhoon HIL microgrid library helped save 4-5 months in controller development and testing.

  • C-HIL technology increased test coverage in a low-cost environment which ensures great product performance and cost-savings for Hitachi ABB customers.
