DUBLIN, Apr. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vn39l9/hardwareinthelo) has announced the addition of the "Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulation for Design and Test" report to their offering.
The research analyzes growth opportunities and current trends in the Hardware-in-loop (HIL) market. The increasing complexity of electronic assembly and of product safety has bolstered the demand for HIL simulation testing. This research includes detailed analysis into selective HIL applications, such as automotive, aerospace and defense (A&D) and power electronics. The base year of the study is 2014.
A typical HIL system receives data from the control system through sensors, sends the plant simulation data to the controller via actuators, processes data using the controller, features a human machine interface (HMI), and analyzes the control unit with the use of a post-simulation analysis platform.
HIL simulation is an integrated part of the control design cycle. This dynamic testing system will deliver products to market faster and accelerates time-to-market by reducing design cycle times.
HIL simulation is a process that is used to test control units by simulating the equipment in a virtual environment and evaluating the controller with a post-simulation analysis platform.
HIL simulation acts as an effective platform for developing and testing real-time control units. The controller can be subjected to different complexities of the plant and faults using the HIL system.
The plant characteristics and the faults are mathematical representation of all related dynamic systems, given as inputs to the controller and tested in a virtual environment.
The accuracy and performance of a HIL system depends in the completeness of the plant model, similar to simulation.
The HIL approach is ideal for the design and test of complex equipment used in automobiles, airplanes, satellites, missiles, rockets, and locomotives.
Apart from automotive and A&D, HIL testing has widened its testing application in power systems and power electronics.
Manufacturers also prefer HIL to traditional testing because the testing cost of the control units using HIL simulation is more cost-effective.
