Advanced Hardware in the Loop (HIL) Techniques for Design, Testing, and Pre-Certification of Smart Inverter Controllers

November 8, 2016


From real-time power electronics modeling and rapid control prototyping, to effortless runtime controller testing, all the way to grid code pre-certification. We use a three-phase grid-tie battery inverter example to demonstrate a complete controller design flow and highlight, every step of the way, the most important features of the new release of Typhoon HIL Control Center software release 2016.3.

Dusan Majstorovic is the Chief Technology Officer and he leads both the technology and product development in Typhoon. In addition, he is the chief architect of Typhoon’s real-time processor. He holds a PhD degree in electrical engineering from the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad, Serbia and an M.Sc. and B.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Novi Sad.

Ivan Celanovic is the Chief Business Development Officer and co-founder of Typhoon-HIL. He is responsible for business development, technology and product development vectors, and innovation. He holds an Sc.D. degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, an M.Sc. degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and a Diploma Engineer degree from the University of Novi Sad, Republic of Serbia, all in electrical engineering and computer science.

Attendees will learn about:

  • How to deploy advanced signal processing toolbox for rapid control prototyping and power measurements
  • A new capability to build and run HIL models even without HIL hardware by simulating models on your laptop using a “virtual HIL” target
  • Best practices for runtime controller testing and fault injection using the Typhoon’s Custom User Interface and Python scripts
  • Controller test automation
  • How to prepare HIL models for grid code pre-certification in Test Suite toolbox
