Below figure shows for a top level diagram showing the
key components of a SNETLY HIL test system.
Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test methodology using Snetly System
The part of the testing that represents the environment, sensors and associated hardware is called the plant model. Low complexity plant model can be incorporated in Snetly system or existing plant model from simulink can be used. Snetly supports co-simulation with Simulink models running in a host connected through Ethernet
The parts of the development & testing of controller design model can be developed using Snetly system.
HIL helps to test the behavior of your control algorithms without actual plant.
