Supercharge ROI of your HIL Testbed investment by means of Virtual HIL technology.
Supercharge ROI of your HIL Testbed investment
Some call it Murphy’s law, some call it reality, but no matter how many HIL Testbeds you have, it is never enough. Virtual HIL Testbed can replace your HIL Testbed during the development, testing and sanity-checking phase of model and test-script development, thus effectively increasing the number of HIL Testbeds available in house.
What is a Virtual HIL Testbed?
Virtual HIL Testbed is a Typhoon HIL toolchain functionality which emulates Typhoon HIL hardware Testbeds, on the Windows®-based PC platform.
In other words, Virtual HIL Testbed is a HIL equivalent of a virtual machine in computing.
Virtual HIL Testbed allows you to run all your models without the actual HIL Testbed hardware. It allows you to transfer the modelling and script development tasks that do not require real time to Virtual HIL Testbed. As a result, you dramatically boost the utilization and ROI of your HIL Testbed.
Develop (component and system) models on Virtual HIL Testbed
Virtual HIL Testbed empowers engineering teams to, independently of one another (and of the HIL Testbed), develop, test and sanity check system and sub-systems on their PCs while their HIL Testbeds are busy doing what they are supposed to do: run high-fidelity real-time simulations with a 1 µs time step.
Write test scripts on Virtual HIL Testbed
Development of test scripts with excellent coverage are development projects in their own right, requiring knowhow, considerable effort and a rigorous testing schedule.
The good news is that a lion’s share of the development of test scripts for hardware HIL Testbed can be successfully completed on Virtual HIL Testbed.
Transform your teaching
Virtual HIL Testbed is a truly game-changing addition to any teaching lab. With it, any computer lab based on Windows®-based PCs can be instantly transformed into a power electronics knowledge and skill factory where students can create their own models and test scripts.
Moreover, Virtual HIL Testbed is the perfect tool to make the flipped classroom teaching methodology work. Using their own PCs with Virtual HIL Testbeds, students can develop their power electronics intuition, knowhow, and knowledge at their own pace in the comfort of their dorm rooms. During contact hours, the models developed using Virtual HIL Testbeds can be run on the real HIL Testbeds in the power electronics laboratory – which is where fundamental learning happens through discussions and exchange of opinions on different solutions for the same problem.
Eliminate guesswork, try it out for yourself
Virtual HIL Testbed is a perfect tool for hands-on assessing of the benefits of controller hardware in the loop tools and for making informed purchasing decisions.
To many engineers HIL technology sounds too good to be true. With Virtual HIL Testbed it is now easier than ever to simply try and see.
Virtual HIL Testbed runs the same code that runs on the proprietary HIL hardware. Its GUI is the same HIL toolchain with all its advanced features such as scope, capture, specialist toolboxes, Python API and HIL SCADA. In other words, Virtual HIL Testbed brings the signature Typhoon HIL interactivity to your desktop.
No matter what your question is, Virtual HIL Testbed is there to provide the answers.
