Applying Model-Based Design for Embedded Controller Development

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.

What is Hardware-In-The-Loop simulation?

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.

Design without mistakes? It never happens…or?

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”.

How to control microgrids?

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.
