Research institutes and corporate R&D divisions choose Typhoon HIL for support in verifying, validating, and providing digital twins for projects in:

– Development, verification and validation of next-generation smart controllers.

E.g. testing and pre-commissioning of a controller and an inverter for a hybrid energy storage systems combining Li-ion and Redux-flow in HYBRIS project.

– HIL testing, virtual integration, emulation and digital twinning of microgrids.

E.g. validation, verification and demonstration of self-consumption, ancillary service and related test scenarios with digital twins of 4 pilot sites (local energy communities ranging from a 100-kW residential site to an 8-MW industrial site) in CREATORS project.

– Validation and virtual demonstration of supervisory DER controls or VPP platforms.

E.g. digital twins of pilot sites for real-time DR solutions in DRIvE project with 5 site models combining BESS, PV, EV chargers, HVAC & wind farms (15 kW to 9 MW).

– Development, verification and validation of EV drivetrain controls and EV chargers

E.g. development of a unified platform for EV drive-train development, testing and pre-commissioning in PANDA project (offline and cloud-based co-simulation with SIEMENS Amesim)

Goal: The CREATORS project will support technical, financial and social processes that support local initiators to establish and operate advanced community energy systems (CES) by creating technical and knowledge capacity for high-quality simulation, business modelling and automated operations.

Our role: Creation of digital twins of pilot sites to enable rapid verification, validation and demonstration of technical and financial use cases that support establishing and operating advanced CES (Community Energy Systems)

Application: Microgrids, Test Automation, MBSE
