National Instruments is introducing the JMAG-RT add-on for NI VeriStand, which gives engineers the same fidelity provided by proven JMAG models, but in real-time for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing of electric motors. To reduce spending on field-testing physical motors, engineers can use NI VeriStand with the JMAG-RT add-on in the lab to easily create stimulus profiles and perform data logging and automated HIL testing with real-time electric motor simulation.
Dr Takashi Yamada, Manager of Electromagnetic Engineering at JSOL, says: “When engineers use the JMAG-RT add-on for NI VeriStand, which combines NI VeriStand software and NI RIO hardware with our JMAG-RT modelling, they get the world’s most advanced platform for real-time electric motor simulation. The system helps expand engineers’ test coverage while saving time and money because they now can perform ECU testing without risking damage to expensive prototype motors.”
- Xilinx FPGA-based hardware/software integration delivers high-fidelity simulations with approximately 1 microsecond step times to increase measurement speed and accuracy
- JMAG finite element analysis (FEA) electric motor models from JSOL integrate with NI VeriStand and NI reconfigurable I/O (RIO) hardware
- NI’s complete HIL systems can be configured for most real-time motor or ECU test scenarios
