This webinar covers the combined workflow of importing/exporting schematics for Typhoon HIL real-time simulation with PSIM.
Powersim and Typhoon HIL are both recognized as leaders in their respective fields. Powersim's popular offline simulation and code generation tool PSIM and revolutionary simulation tool DSIM are known for reliability, speed, accuracy, and ease of use. Typhoon's real-time Hardware in the Loop (HIL) systems are valued for their high fidelity real-time simulations and ability to test the actual control hardware rather than simply the control algorithm.
As recognized technology leaders, a seamless workflow from PSIM to Typhoon's Control Center and vice versa was a natural progression. This workflow will:
To showcase the workflow, we cover two case studies that include embedded code generation for the TI C2000 MCU family,
This case study pushes the limits of what can be achieved with a real-time HIL simulation and test the limits of embedded code generation from PSIM. PCMC of a phase shift full bridge requires a trip signal to be generated by comparing the peak current with a reference which then creates a phase shifted 50% duty cycle waveform relative to the reference clock. The active secondary is also complex to implement as the duty cycle and position changes based on the phase shift of the primary switches. This example makes extensive use of PSIM deep support of the ePWM, X-Bar, comparator inputs, and PWM trip zones that are available with the new Delfino F2837x MCU.
The Power stage of phase shift full bridge converter, working with 60kHz switching frequency, is simulated in real-time on Typhoon HIL’s HIL602 device. Due to high switching frequency and crucial importance of small IO latency this is an extremely challenging task for today’s HIL technology in the power electronics field. This example puts Typhoon’s high speed sampling algorithm of digital input signals (6ns), high fidelity converter models, and ultra-low IO stage latency to the test.
This case study shows a 3 phase grid link converter with an MPPT control algorithm. We use PSIM to verify the control of the converter and MPPT algorithm. The control code is generated and verified in real-time with the Typhoon HIL simulation. Further testing and analysis of the control is performed with the HIL.
We also demonstrate the link with a few other examples including:
