I am Tijana Ostojic. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Measurement and Control Engineering with the University of Novi Sad Faculty of Technical Sciences, I am currently studying for my Master’s degree in the same program as well as interning with Typhoon HIL.
Meet Darko, Embedded Software Engineer at Typhoon HIL. Darko graduated the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad and completed his Bachelors and Masters in Mechatronics. He has always been passionate about robotics.
Model-Based Design for embedded control software development is a modern approach to designing complex embedded systems. It reduces the shortcomings of traditional workflows, which usually rely on gathering document-based requirements and manual testing that is performed only at late stages of the development cycle.
Hardware-In-The-Loop (HIL) simulation is a specially designed technology that helps you to test the behavior of your control algorithms without physical prototypes. HIL is a type of real-time simulation, which means it creates a virtual real-time environment that represents your physical system to control. This technique is the standard for developing and testing the most complex control, protection, and monitoring systems. HIL simulation allows you effectively test your controllers on a real-time plant simulator that acts as a digital twin of the whole system or its parts to benefit from lower cost and functionality.
20 years ago at APEC, I met a guy who had been a long tenured VP of Engineering at a power conversion company. We were talking about the power conversion design process and the inevitable mistakes we make along the way.
He said: ”I told my guys, if any of you ever designs a power supply or even a PCB that doesn’t require rework or design change I will buy you a Porsche”.
A microgrid is a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources that can connect and disconnect from the grid to operate in grid-connected or island mode. Control Microgrids is a complex process that implies voltage and frequency regulation, real and reactive power control, load forecasting and scheduling, microgrid monitoring, protection, and black start.
The Power Electronics Specialization program is one of the most comprehensive power electronics online learning source. It it created to help electrical engineers who are looking to branch out into a new field of study, or other people who simply want to refresh their power electronics knowledge. This program is designed to provide the additional information and clarification necessary for success in power electronics applications. Power Electronics Specialization offers you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and prepare you for active participation in the forthcoming transition in how we use electrical energy.
Join us at the 22nd IEEE Workshop on Control and Modeling for Power Electronics (COMPEL2021) next week for a two-part tutorial on Hardware in the Loop design and testing for DER Integration to reduce time spent in the development cycle and ensure grid components work together seamlessly in real-life scenarios.
