Solution

In order to create the ideal control platform for hands-on student projects and R&D, EPFL students designed and combined equipment accounting for a robust monolithic design, signal conditioning tailored for power electronics applications, and software-independent safety mechanisms.

Conclusion

Typhoon HIL600 was used in the many testing stages to guarantee for the platform’s efficiency. The system is easy to use, comprising of merely a motherboard and 4 daughterboards, optical receivers and LEM sensors.
