FPGA-based Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulation for Power Electronics


Learn how to deploy electrical circuit models to FPGA based real-time systems for Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation.  This webinar will use an example of a solar inverter model that is converted into HDL code and both embedded code generation to a TI C2000 implemented on Speedgoat real-time target hardware.

The webinar will include 

  • Best practices for building Simscape models that will need to run on an FPGA 
  • Details such as how to partition one part of a plant model onto an FPGA and the other part onto a processor
  • Moving from desktop simulation to real-time simulation to perform HIL simulation on FPGAs for power electronics 


  • Generating floating-point HDL code using HDL Coder
  • Directly converting Simscape models to HDL code using the Simscape to HDL Advisor
  • Deploying HDL code to a Speedgoat real-time target machine

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
