The idea of the concept was to reduce the effort of mechanical HiL test benches.
This was realised by moving more real components into the simulation. Within the work, a real-time system was designed that generates output force signals. The output signal of the real-time system summarises the overall behaviour of the simulated mechanical components.
A linear motor was chosen as the mechanical actuator. For the work, a market analysis of the required hardware and software components was carried out and a test system was set up. Mechanical models were created in MATLAB/Simulink and executed as real-time simulation with RT-Lab.
By coupling the real-time system with the linear motor, a load simulation could be realised. The visualisation and parameterisation of a user interface with connection to the real-time system was carried out with LabView.
