The company receives the 2015 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award for its pioneering ultra-high fidelity Hardware-in-the-Loop products for power electronics testing and test automation.

Based on its recent analysis of the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) market for power electronics and smart grid, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Typhoon HIL with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. Typhoon HIL is a pioneer in addressing key end-user challenges, notably the need for ultra-high fidelity Hardware-in-the-Loop test solutions. The product design team at Typhoon HIL has developed the fastest and easiest to use HIL real-time simulators that enable complete test automation and superior model fidelity compared to other available HIL solutions. In fact, Typhoon HIL‘s top competitors have no comparable simulating solution for power electronics and smart grid.

"Typhoon HIL provides tools for automated testing of control systems, software regression testing, pre-certification and continuous test and integration processes, which translate into a fully integrated HIL solution,“ said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Viswam Sathiyanarayanan. "In addition, the company uses its own highly optimized and fully integrated software and hardware platform, thus redefining the ease of use and greatly reducing deployment effort."

Previously, HIL systems could be run with millisecond-to-second simulation time steps, not nearly fast enough for power electronics. Typhoon HIL was the first to fulfill this unmet need by designing a 1 microsecond time step HIL. Typhoon HIL 4 series and Typhoon HIL 6 series solutions are now used in power electronics applications such as solar inverters, battery storage, wind turbines and motor drives. Another innovative product is the HIL Microgrid DSP Interface, a rapid prototyping tool for smart inverter controllers and microgrids that works seamlessly with the HIL4 and HIL6 series systems.
