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