Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) Simulation

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation is a technique that is used for the development and testing of control systems which are used for the operation of complex machines and systems. With HIL simulation the physical part of a machine or system is replaced by a simulation. This allows rigorous testing of the control system with great benefits.HIL Simulation.

With a simulated plant you can run tests that would destroy a real plant or would be harmful for people in a real situation. That is why HIL testing can greatly enhance the safe operation of machines. However if HIL testing is properly embedded in your design process there are more benefits.
