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 simulation in real-time. The full paper will elaborate the characteristics of this novel HILS platform.


A New Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulator for CNC Machine Applications
USENMEZ, S.; MUTLU, B. R.; Yaman, Ulaş; KILIÇ, ERGİN; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2013-03-01)
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 Prog...
Distributed discrete event simulation architecture with connectors
Çolpankan, İsmet Özgür; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Kara, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
In this thesis we propose a distributed approach to Simulation Modeling Architecture (SiMA) with software connectors via Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) as a middleware technology. SiMA is a DEVS-based modeling and simulation framework developed in TUBITAK BILGEM ILTAREN. Discrete Event System Specification (DEVS) is a formalism that arranges complex system models with a well-defined execution protocol. A connector is a first class entity which performs interaction among components and plays an impor...
Real-time object-oriented framework for fmi co-simulation
Çam Silik, Merve; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
Development of models, their integration into FMI-compliant co-simulation and performing the simulation in real-time environment are crucial tasks in embedded system development. To introduce an object-oriented co-simulation environment to real-time domain, promote model reuse and minimize effort for co-simulation environment generation a Real-Time Object-Oriented Framework for FMI Co-Simulation was developed for completion of this thesis. A case study which comprises of a control actuation system and sine ...
Massive crowd simulation with parallel processing
Yılmaz, Erdal; İşler, Veysi; Department of Information Systems (2010)
This thesis analyzes how parallel processing with Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) could be used for massive crowd simulation, not only in terms of rendering but also the computational power that is required for realistic simulation. The extreme population in massive crowd simulation introduces an extra computational load, which is quite difficult to meet by using Central Processing Unit (CPU) resources only. The thesis shows the specific methods and approaches that maximize the throughput of GPU parallel com...
Digital control of universal telecommunication power supplies using dual 8-bit microcontrollers
Kutluay, K; Cadirci, I; Yafavi, A; Cadirci, Y (2002-10-18)
Design and implementation of a digital controller for universal telecommunication power supply modules are presented. The paper emphasises on converter control strategy, and its implementation by means of parallel operated, dual 8-bit microcontrollers. One of the microcontrollers is employed for user interface purposes, such as long term records, display and alarm facilities, which are inherently slow processes. The fast processing speed required by output voltage setting, current limit, and load current sh...
