This interface allows controlling imperix power modules from an Opal-RT simulator.
This way, any control implementation can be first tested – without any risk – on a simulated converter before it is later tested on real hardware. In this second step, all cables can be instantly swapped from the interface to the real converter.
For the present and future owners of hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulators, imperix provides interface boards that feature either:
- 16 optical inputs and 16 analog outputs
- 16 optical outputs and 16 analog inputs
No change in the control code is necessary to switch from an HIL-simulated converter to a real-world physical converter, as the cables can be just swapped from one system to another.
