The Laboratory is equipped with the powerful dSPACE real-time simulators as a enabling technology to study and analysis different models of physical systems and control strategies using hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP).
SCLALEXIO – a powerful Multi-core and versatile hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator that provides highly flexible channels, and a specialized I/O hardware. Control Desk Next Generation software let real-time simulation of Matlab/Simulink models, e.g. dSPACE Electrical Power Systems Simulation Package allows the real-time simulation of electrical models developed in SimPowerSystems.

MicroLabBox – a small all-in-one development system for rapid control prototyping (RCP). It comes with over 100 channels of different I/O types and a combination of real-time processor and FPGA functionality. Close-loop and open-loop control algorithms can be developed in Matlab/Simulink and implemented on the freely programmable FPGA of the MicroLabBox to achieve the fastest possible control sampling rate. RTI E-Motor Control blockset is used in combination with FPGA programming blockset to achieve the fastest possible control sampling rate of 16MHz for motor control. Read more.
DS1104 R&D Controller Board – a single PCI board system for real-time control development and rapid control prototyping (RCP). Currently, two PCs in the lab have this board installed and can be used as a real-time hardware for smaller control development in power electronics, electrical machines, drives, and robotics.
