Building a Better Microgrid with Hardware in the Loop

hardware-in-the-loop testing

The electric power grid is undergoing one of the most fundamental changes since its inception over a century ago. That transformation has been summed up as the “3 Ds,” which stands for digitalization, decentralization and decarbonization.  This value-added shift is being aided, in part, by new tools and processes, such as Hardware in the Loop … [Read more...]

4 ways Controller Hardware in the Loop and Model-based Engineering are Reducing Risk

Controller Hardware in the Loop

Matt Baker, Ivan Celanovic and Paul Roege, of Typhoon-HIL, break down how Controller Hardware in the Loop (C-HIL), and model-based engineering work to ensure your microgrid performs, and allows companies to test and validate microgrid design every step of the way. Industry 4.0 is dawning, and digitalization, decarbonization, and … [Read more...]
