Why HIL DSP Interface for microgrid?
The Typhoon HIL DSP Interface for microgrid application, specially built for the C2000 family of Texas Instruments DSP DIM100 cards is the solution if you want to accelerate the development of multi-converter power electronics applications. Whether you are interested in paralleling, or microgrid energy storage control strategies developers can now focus on DSP control code development and hierarchical control and communications for microgrids. Rapidly speed up the setup time by porting a Typhoon example code into DSPs and continue building more complex applications based on existing code examples.
Dynamically reconfigurable GUI interface for TI DSP apps.
The Control Panel app supports a dynamically reconfigurable (depending on the control application) and easy to use graphical user interface (GUI) enabling run-time interaction with all three control applications. TI Control Panel communicates through RS232 serial link with all three DSP controllers. User can quickly evaluate the corresponding (Typhoon HIL demo or any TI free example C2000 code) power electronics applications emulated on the HIL system.
HIL uGrid DSP Interface advantage
In less than 5 minutes a first time user can plug a HIL DSP Interface for microgrid to a Typhoon HIL602 real-time emulator, download one of the prepackaged examples and get a complex multi-converter system running.
Whether you are paralleling multiple converters to increase the power rating or exploring high-level control and communication for microgrids our solution promises flexibility and ease of use. Debug application via built in USB JTAG emulator or access controllers via serial port. For complete debugging enjoyment, access all HIL analog/digital I/O pins physically via headers and connectors on the board.
Microgrid with Energy storage
A complete control software for battery energy storage inverter, PV inverter and diesel genset can be developed using HIL DSP Interface for microgrid. A complete microgrid can be simulated with the HIL602 and microgrid HIL DSP Interface with TI DSP card.
Microgrid model implemented provides the most realistic environment for development and testing of microgrid power electronics systems. In this system, a microgrid model comprises intermittent photovoltaic power source, permanent magnet synchronous machine wind turbine generator, diesel powered synchronous generator, variable speed motor drive, resistive load, nonlinear current load, utility grid and main contactor that emulates both grid-connected and off-grid operational regimes.
