RT Box Workshop

Real-Time Simulation using the PLECS RT Box

Content

In the workshop, you will learn modeling techniques for real-time simulations using PLECS with the PLECS RT Box. You will work hands-on with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) application examples. You will see that step size can be reduced to microseconds, even for large-scale models. In addition to the technical aspects, the workshop offers an opportunity to connect with the developers of PLECS. The required software and PLECS RT Box hardware will be provided for the workshop.
