This guide provides and overview of the Two Level Inverter 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 two-level inverter. In this example, we will send a constant voltage U01 to the battery block and gating signals to the universal bridge block SW01-06 using the on-board SPWM generators. The inverter voltages and currents (i.e measurements), Y01-Y06 and Y07, will be displayed in the user interface.
The tutorial has been split up into the following sections:
