Residential Energy Systems

The home as a microgrid.

Residential energy systems are evolving. As homeowners seek greater energy independence and a reduced reliance on traditional power grids, the integration of renewables and Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) is gaining traction. By seamlessly incorporating renewable energy sources and advanced components like battery energy storage systems (BESS), homeowners can not only reduce their carbon footprint and save on electricity bills but also take control by producing their own clean energy.

Given the surge in consumer demand, it’s crucial for providers of these energy solutions — from solar and battery inverters to electric vehicle chargers and smart home devices — to prioritize safety and reliability. Before introducing their innovations to households, they must rigorously address potential risks and ensure they meet the highest standards of risk mitigation.

Typhoon HIL offers a streamlined approach to HIL testing, allowing for precise validation of complex energy components and integrated systems in a virtual environment. By leveraging our vertically integrated hardware and software, you can test against events like overvoltage, overcurrent, or short circuits. This ensures that your products and systems are safe and responsive, delivering peace of mind before they reach consumers.

Our HIL devices help you:

  • Comprehensively test and validate before deploying physical hardware, minimizing the risk of expensive failures or design flaws
  • Ensure compatibility with diverse products which include various types of solar inverters and systems
  • Verify battery management system (BMS) operation for numerous battery chemistries
  • Improve test coverage and speed, decreasing your time to market 
  • Assess and validate safety features, fault handling, and protection mechanisms
  • Certify compliance with relevant safety and environmental regulations

Secure the future of residential energy with thorough and reliable HIL testing – partner with Typhoon HIL today to build a sustainable tomorrow.  

Building a Better Microgrid

Testing and pre-certification is where implementing Typhoon HIL’s Controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) test solutions helped us the most: we dramatically decreased our development and testing time through test automation and the wide array of tested scenarios enabled us to always step into certification with full confidence.
