Modeling and Simulation of Converters and Systems
Power Hardware-in-the-Loop, Aerospace, rapid product evaluation
As the aerospace industry moves towards the More Electric Aircraft (MEA), there is a growing need to model the increasingly complex electrical systems. Real-time modeling and simulation allows standalone simulations to be completed much faster than traditional simulation methods, and allows for Power Hardware-in-the-Loop (P-HIL) emulation and testing. The P-HIL testbench demonstrated in this paper can be run back-to-back where both the source and the load are emulated systems with real power transferred between them. This paper demonstrates the development and execution of machine and power converter emulation on the EGSTON Power Electronics' COMPISO System Unit CSU200-1GAMP6 P-HIL platform. The advantages and capabilities of P-HIL for the MEA are presented in this paper.
