Upcoming events

As has been the case for many years, this year’s APEC is shaping out to be the world’s biggest event in applied power electronics. Everyone dealing in power electronics is going to be in San Antonio from March 4 to 8: OEMs, suppliers, designers, testing, compliance and application engineers, utility representatives, stakeholders, and researchers. Exactly because of this diversity of interests, we have prepared a wide selection of hands-on demos to cater to virtually all possible applications of Controller Hardware in the Loop (CHIL). Therefore, whether you are new to CHIL, or you are wondering how it can help you with your new application, drop by our booth, 437. We will set up a live demo with HIL604 for you and you will see how quickly you can configure our high-fidelity real-time HIL solutions for anything you may be working on. Whether you are working on a next-generation household inverter, on a novel terrestrial microgrid for hurricane-stricken regions or you are developing a shipboard power system

Microgrids, traditionally associated only with military bases and remote communities, are now considered quintessential to energy resilience on a global scale. Yet, despite everybody acknowledging their importance and commercialization potential, microgrids still represent just a fraction of the installed electricity generation capacities (e.g. in the USA, in 2017, microgrids are estimated to represent 1.8 GW out of the total generation capacities of approximately 1060 GW). The two biggest obstacles for the next wave of microgrid adoptions by cities, public institutions and utilities seem to be control and integration issues, although diverse grid codes and standards also probably play a role. We know for certain that all these obstacles can be overcome by introducing hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) into the workflow. That is why we cordially invite you to join us at booth #14 at Microgrid 2017, the premier US conference on all things microgrids and the meeting point for industry leaders, various energy customers, policy makers, regulators, and researchers in the domain of microgrids and energy resilience. We have prepared a comprehensive, informative, hands-on demo

In order to promote Python as the language of choice for virtually all kinds of applications, Typhoon HIL Inc. branch office in Serbia is organizing the first-ever Python Hackathon in the region. There is a clear shift in the industry, as Python is increasingly becoming the language of choice for major names in the IT landscape: in addition to Google, whose language of choice has long been Python, Facebook and Instagram are also predominantly based on Python, a significant part of Uber stack is in Python, and even Microsoft introduced full support for Python in Visual Studio 2017. However, although Python has recently become the second most popular programming language in the world and looks certain to dethrone Java in the next couple of years, many in the software industry are still reluctant to enjoy the benefits of Python as a jack-of-all-trades general purpose programming language that allows rapid development, yet can easily scale to supporting hundreds of millions of users in client-server applications. As a company which has almost entirely switched to Python for the development of our software toolchain, we wanted to ...

Control software for power electronics is usually developed by text-based programming. It is the methodology that has not fundamentally changed since the age of punch cards. It makes documentation, testing and validation difficult, laborious and time-consuming. However, the coding community is increasingly becoming aware of huge benefits of using model-based development, such as  much faster prototyping, more insightful testing, and straightforward verification. With PSIM and Typhoon HIL’s real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulators, model-based development becomes a reality in power electronics. That is why we cordially invite you to join us at PSIM User Conference 2017, organized by MyWay, at Shin-Yokohama Kokusai Hotel, centrally located between Kawasaki and Yokohama, where we will address the topic of model-based development in a hands-on tutorial. The tutorial on model-based development with PSIM and Typhoon HIL real-time simulators  takes

The 10th anniversary SEPOC, and the first SEPOC with the IEEE seal, is going to be the biggest to date, with focus on smart systems for smart grids, as well as on distributed generation quality and operation. As both smart grid systems and high-quality distributed generation depend on advanced control systems, this is a must-go conference for academia and industry interested in latest cutting-edge technologies in power electronics controls and their applications. For this reason, we cordially invite you to join us at our booth at SEPOC 2017 where you are in for interactive, hands-on demos of the latest real-time hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testbeds that make control development and testing much faster and more insightful. We have prepared a wide choice of demos that illustrate the benefits of an integrated end-to-end software and hardware HIL systems in designing, testing and pre-commissioning of converters, microgrids, shipboard power systems, but also in teaching and research. Moreover, there is also a free

19th European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications, EPE’17 ECCE Europe

Electrical energy conversion is the main transformative force ushering in the era of the Smart Grid and electric transportation. For this reason, we cordially invite you to join us at IEEE-ECCE 2017 as the flagship conference on electrical energy conversion. Whether it is power converters, drive controls, renewable energy devices, microgrids or electric transportation on land, at sea or in the air, the ever-growing number of technical papers by cutting-edge researchers and thought-leaders is sure to reveal the new and emerging technologies, solutions and trends. As the whole conference, as well as its plenary session, focuses on electric transportation, we have prepared a hands-on demo that shows the benefits of using hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) for designing, testing and commissioning electric propulsion systems. Needless to say, we have also prepared other demos, designed to demonstrate new levels of efficiency that every power electronics engineer can gain by ...
