With the trend of shipboard electrification, there come new requirements for power storage, power quality with fast load switching, and control systems. From proof of concept to detailed implementation, model-based design and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing for the system and controls is essential. More sophisticated shipboard power systems require high-performance, and also scalable HIL testing solutions. These can accelerate the development and de-risk hardware failure. Speedgoat and MathWorks provide solutions for this by using expandable multi-core and multi-target technology.
