Mtg: Addressing System Control Complexity with Multi-Physics Modeling and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Simulation

by @ 9:52 am. Filed under ALL, Computers/Software, Electrical/Power, Electronics Design, Engineering Mgmt

THURSDAY February 24, 2011
SCV Control Systems Chapter
Speaker: Christoph Wimmer, National Instruments
Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM; complimentary buffet lunch served at noon
Cost: none; sponsored by National Instruments and Maplesoft
Place: Sunnyvale Grand Hotel, 865 West El Camino Real, Sunnyvale
RSVP: from website

The IEEE Control Systems Society is pleased to offer this workshop about Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation.? Experts from industry will discuss the theory and practice of HIL simulation and testing and offer hands-on experience with industry-grade hardware and software tools.
As the growth in system complexity outpaces the expansion of development resources and project timelines, the tools and techniques must evolve to achieve success.? As an example, multi-physics modeling environments are providing design efficiency for these mechatronics systems by simplifying the modeling process allowing more time for design analysis and innovation.? But the ability to re-use the investments in these models in real-time testing applications including HIL simulators and test cells can greatly expand the impact of this evolution.? This presentation will provide an overview of the HIL testing process, the impact it has made in various industries, and new HIL testing techniques that have emerged to increase its effectiveness.? It will also discuss how multi-physics modeling environments are being used with these systems.
During a self-paced hands-on workshop in the afternoon, attendees will step through the process of creating models with MapleSoft’s MapleSim multi-physics modeling environment, automatically generating a compiled, real-time executable version of the model, and then using that version of the model with National Instrumentsâ?? VeriStand to create a HIL test system.? Several advanced application demonstrations will be performed at the end of the workshop.
