This study focuses on an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing (real-time/nonreal- time) hardware-in-the-loop simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, CNC machine tools. In this approach, once the dynamics of the plant to be controlled is defined via C++ language, the resulting code is cross-compiled automatically on a PC. Executable files along with the necessary drivers are downloaded onto the composite hardware platform that consists of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) along with a powerful DSP board. The paper elaborates the overall performance of this novel hybrid HILS platform on a CNC machine tool application.


Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation of electrical machine systems using FPGAs
Üşenme, Serdar; Dilan, R.A.; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2009-11-18)
This study focuses on the development an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing real-time simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, for the purpose of hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS). The system to be controlled is first defined using a block diagram editor. The defined model is then compiled and downloaded onto an FPGA (¿Field Programmable Gate Array¿) based hardware platform, which is to interface with the controller under test and carry out the...
Acceleration of molecular dynamics simulation for TERSOFF2 potential through reconfigurable hardware
Vargün, Bilgin; Erkoç, Şakir; Eminoğlu, Selim; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2012)
In nanotechnology, Carbon Nanotubes systems are studied with Molecular Dynamics Simulation software programs investigating the properties of molecular structure. Computational loads are very complex in these kinds of software programs. Especially in three body simulations, it takes a couple of weeks for small number of atoms. Researchers use supercomputers to study more complex systems. In recent years, by the development of sophisticated Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Technology, researchers design s...
A Digitally programmable application specific integrated circuit for drive and data acquisition of imaging sensorsMethod of moments analysis of slotted waveguide antenna arrays
Bayhan, Nusret; Akın, Tayfun; Eminoğlu, Selim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This thesis explains the implementation of a digital programmable Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) designed for imaging applications. The primary function of this ASIC is to drive imaging sensors and to do basic processing on the digital video data coming from the sensors. The ASIC is designed to handle the communication between the imaging sensor and the system. Using command based high-level instructions, this two-way communication is simplified. The ASIC can also be used to store and update...
Considering manufacturing cost and scheduling performance on a CNC turning machine
Gürel, Sinan (Elsevier BV, 2007-02-16)
A well known industry application that allows controllable processing times is the manufacturing operations on CNC machines. For each turning operation as an example, there is a nonlinear relationship between the manufacturing cost and its required processing time on a CNC turning machine. If we consider total manufacturing cost (F-1) and total weighted completion time (F-2) objectives simultaneously on a single CNC machine, making appropriate processing time decisions is as critical as making job sequencin...
Design of a computer interface for automatic finite element analysis of an excavator boom
Yener, Mehmet; Söylemez, Eres; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to design a computer interface, which links the user to commercial Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program, MSC.Marc-Mentat to make automatic FE analysis of an excavator boom by using DELPHI as platform. Parametrization of boom geometry is done to add some flexibility to interface called OPTIBOOM. Parametric FE analysis of a boom shortens the design stages and helps to find the optimum design in terms of stresses and mass.
