Future of Tools for Real-Time Test

Ben Black
National Instruments, Jean Belanger, OPAL-RT Technologies


The growth of the power electronics industry continually pushes the boundaries of real-time simulation technology. As new-generation power switching devices increase speed, control systems are able to run faster and tighter control loops. Testing the control systems requires a combination of state of the art hardware and specialized simulation software. To stay ahead of the industry trends, OPAL-RT Technologies and National Instruments are collaborating to bring best-in-industry hardware-in-the-loop testing tools to the dynamic power electronics market.
This presentation will describe the strategic alliance between NI and OPAL-RT to develop power electronic teaching tools as well as for the development of a rich library of fast power electronic converter and motor models compatible with JMAG and optimized for HIL simulation and testing for automotive and industrial applications.
