OPAL-RT provides a complete range of Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) solutions to help quickly develop, iterate and test control strategies, while cutting back on development risk, time and cost.
With RCP, mathematical models are automatically imported (typically from MATLAB/Simulink™) into a real-time simulator configured with input/output (I/O) interfaces, before being connected to real-world systems. Controller functionality can then be more rapidly assessed in a representative testing environment, in order to ensure smooth and rapid implementation throughout the project.
RCP enabling faster and easier detection of design errors earlier in the development process, reducing costly rework delays and improving overall product quality. For research and development, technology demonstrations can be performed earlier in the project stages, without the need for complex coding and integration.
