Hardware-in-the-Loop

Our Hardware-in-the-Loop testing facilities offer you an excellent alternative to traditional testing methods.

With our state-of-the art software models, we recreate the electric grid and accurately reproduce the network’s dynamics. This allows us to test your algorithms’ and equipments’ interaction with control systems and other equipment in real-time.

We provide comprehensive closed-loop testing, negating the need for costly, dangerous tests on real systems.

Our Power Hardware-in-the-Loop test platform allows you to test your devices under full power within the real-time simulation environment.

Power Hardware-in-the-Loop

Our Power Hardware-in-the-Loop test platform allows you to test your devices under full power within the real-time simulation environment.

This in-depth testing allows you to validate your power equipment and understand its behaviour in real-life usage conditions, thanks to highly accurate and powerful simulations.
