  • How we made a transition from painful testing with real hardware to HIL testing
  • Finally a HIL that power electronics engineer can use
  • HIL helped reduce development time

At a power electronics development department, improving productivity, streamlining development, and shortening delivery time are essential, which is why Hardware-in-the-Loop and model-based development (MBD) is attracting attention in control development. Why did Honda R&D Co., Ltd., a long-time user and advocate of HIL technology, choose Typhoon HIL?
We asked the person in charge at the development department.

  • Ultra-high fidelity redefined.
  • 200ns simulation time step.
  • 3.5 ns digital input sampling.
  • The most accurate 100kHz Dual-active bridge (DAB) model.
  • JMAG-RT FEM machine model import.
  • HIL connectivity exploded: USB3.0, Ethernet, GB/s serial link, JTAG, General Purpose IO (GPIO)

While automotive and aerospace industries have already adopted model based HIL testing, power electronics industry is only playing a catch up. The good news is that the 4th generation HIL is delivering the unprecedented model fidelity needed for the most advanced motor drives and automotive power electronics applications.
