Real-time simulation, virtual prototyping and partial-system testing

Abstract:

This chapter deals mainly with development of virtual prototypes and with testing procedures in which equipment from a real system is evaluated within a simulation environment. This leads to requirements for real-time performance and to ‘hardware-in-the-loop’ simulation in which some elements of the system are represented only in software. Real-time simulation methods, including multi-rate simulation techniques, are described and examples considered include real-time simulation of a hydro-turbine generator system and an unmanned underwater vehicle.
