Key Considerations for Powertrain HIL Test
This resource is published by NI
Safety, availability, and cost considerations can make performing thorough tests of embedded control devices
using the complete system impractical.
Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation is a real-time test technique used to test these devices more efficiently.
During HIL test, the physical system that interfaces to an embedded control device is simulated on real-time hardware, and the outputs of the simulator mimic the actual output of the physical system. The embedded controller “thinks” it is in a real system.
HIL simulation meticulously tests embedded control devices in a virtual environment before proceeding to real-world tests of the complete system.
This whitepaper covers recommended best practices for powertrain HIL testing.
