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.
