Typhoon HIL Hands-on training at Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel

Jan 17, 2020

The training participants can look forward to one intensive day with Typhoon HIL engineers in which they will learn more about Typhoon HIL toolchain. This training is aimed at students, teachers and researchers in domain of power electronics, microgrids and power systems.

The outcome of this training is to give you operating knowledge of hardware-in-the-loop concepts and tools that you can apply in your everyday research and educational work. 

The training participation is free of charge.

  • Our research is focused on the design of high efficient and reliable PWM-based power converter architectures (single-cell, multi-cell, multilevel), their modelling and control to exploit commercial as well as new power semiconductor devices with minimum over design.
    We develop controllers for electric drives and we are particularly skilled in the integration of renewable energy systems into the electric grid.
