Automotive manufacturers today are under great pressure to find new ways to develop, test, and validate their high-performing electric drive units, despite shrinking budgets and shorter timeframes. If this sounds familiar, Typhoon HIL’s Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) solutions can help you overcome industry challenges to improve your testing processes by:

  • Full test automation suite, with integration to DevOps processes
  • Reduced lag time, so testing is optimized
  • True plug-and-play HIL solution

Optimize your BMS Testing Solution

Battery Management System

Electric vehicle battery.

Our comprehensive toolchain makes it easy to ensure all of the components of your battery management system, controllers, and chargers are at peak performance. This is essential to maximize the lifespan and reliability of your EVs. Recreate a range of faults and errors and delays using our high-fidelity simulations to see how your battery management systems stand up in the real world, and make any changes needed to address any safety hazards proactively. Scale your BMS solution with:

  • Cell model running on a real-time simulator with 16x cell emulator channels per box
  • Modular design (easy to upgrade system simply by adding more boxes, no need for existing equipment modifications)
  • Thermistor and isolation resistance emulators available

Improving Communication Across Power Source Standards

On-Board Charger

Onboard charger for an electric vehicle.

Your on-board charger (OBC) plays an essential role in powering your electric vehicles (EVs). Typhoon HIL’s specialized hardware enables your charger to communicate with a variety of external sources to convert AC energy into DC energy to charge your battery system. Our system makes it easy to simulate the charger components and switching capabilities in real-time in order to test these features in the virtual space and make sure they work under a range of conditions in the safest and most reliable way. Moreover, we support your team by:

  • Testing for DC fast chargers, and electric vehicles OBC
  • Early stage validation of control algorithms and communication protocols
  • Simplifies the process of compliance testing with safety and communication standards, such as ISO 15118

Typhoon HIL offers a cutting-edge simulated solution that makes it easy to test your charging station with your EV to ensure everything works together safely and efficiently. Our high-fidelity platform streamlines the process to help you optimize your charging station testing experience.

  • DCDC converters simulated with 25ns time step
  • Validate communication protocols for different models of EVs and EVSE and test against existing charging standards
  • Validate DC fast chargers interoperability with different EVs without the ISO 15118 implementation complexity
  • Perform conformance tests in-house, avoiding certification failures and reducing development costs
  • Test the integration of the V2G management system with the grid in real-time validating controllers and power converters for bidirectional power flow

Owing to the fact of early porting of controller algorithm to the real target hardware, a large number of issues, especially in control hardware configuration, can be solved prior to system integration especially in control hardware configuration, can be solved prior to system integration. This results in significant development time and cost benefit.
