Mastering the Challenges of Electromobility

Power HIL as key enabler for efficient testing of power electronics in aerospace

Managing the increasing demand of electrical power onboard aircraft requires highly efficient power electronics. Moreover, with the help of intelligently controlled power electronics, voltages can be transformed in such a way that the different aircraft systems are always supplied with the required DC or AC voltages. To master the challenges in validation and verification of such control systems, a new technology has been designed for testing power electronics at full power. By combining the flexibility of proven HIL technologies with the testing depth of mechanical dynamometers and real-world tests, Power HIL systems from dSPACE bridge the gap between signal-based HIL testing and testing on dynamometers or in prototype aircraft.
