This guide provides and overview of the Three Phase Rectifer Example included in the OPAL-RT Power Electronics Add-On for NI VeriStand.  We will discuss deploying, running, and monitoring the simulation in real-time.  

The model used in this example was created using the  Simscape Electrical Specialized Power Systems Simulink Blockset (see below). It represents a three phase diode rectifier. In this example, we generate three sine waves using the built-in FPGA signal generators to simulate the U01, U02, and U03 AC sources in the electrical circuit. The Y01-Y08 measurements are displayed on a graph and we expect Y08 to measure a DC voltage based on the input AC sources. 

The tutorial has been split into the following sections:
