The aerospace industry is foreseeing a lot of challenges to improve performance, efficiency and maintenance costs of manned aircraft. Due to the difficulty to improve a long proven classic airplane design, the industries transition to More Electric Aircraft (MEA) is inevitable. By the electrification of the aircraft, the industry will push the concept of hybrid electric powered aircraft and ultimately reach an all-electric aircraft level. As a result of our extensive experience in power electronic simulations, OPAL-RT has the right tools to push forward the testing and validations of the ever-growing electrification of airplanes.
The heart of our solutions is eHS, a generic, reprogrammable FPGA-based electrical hardware solver. eHS enables users to bring any model created into real time using the simulation tools of their choice: SimScape Power System, PSIM™, PLECS Blockset™ or Multisim™.
