Design of HIL for Multi-Level Inverter Using Zynq-7000 Platform – Part 1
Development of power electronic devices requires multi -disciplined engineering activities. These cover the thermal, electrical and software design. Due to this design complexity rapid prototyping methods and model-based design are becoming more and more important in the R&D projects in this field. In case of the multi-level inverter based drives the strict reliability requirements make the aforementioned new approaches more attractive. This article is the first part of the series which introduces the application of the model based design and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) tools through the modeling of a Cellular H-Bridge inverter (CHB). This article focuses on the power electronic system modeling and verification. The model of the CHB is implemented and verified in Matlab.
