Rapid prototyping with a hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) system significantly reduces the development time for controller-type testing and is widely used in various fields of engineering. In this discussion, a controller is developed for a speed control application utilizing a magnetic brake. A mathematical model is presented first that has been implemented in Matlab/ Simulink. The controller development steps are described that will form the basis of a control system for a wind turbine. A test is carried out that simulates the wind turbine inertial load.
