Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Testing for Power Electronics Systems Modeled in Simulink


Topics covered include:

  1. Review of a system level model of a motor and inverter in Simulink
  2. Use of HDL Coder to generate floating-point HDL from the Simulink model to achieve a time-step of 1 µs
  3. Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation using Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat target hardware
