State-of-the-art control algorithms for electric drive systems, such as model-based predictive control, require a significant amount of processing power. The interface between the power electronics and the control procedure developed is provided by computational platforms, typically microcontrollers. These measure actual values, compute the control in real time, and generate switching signals for the power electronics. In addition to microcontrollers, state-of-the-art system-on-a-chip (“SoC”) platforms are growing in importance. These combine microcontrollers and FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) on a single chip. By combining FPGAs and microcontrollers, complex algorithms can be computed much more quickly. This makes it possible to fulfil real-time requests that were not possible just a few years ago. The control concepts developed for power electronics and drive systems are executed in real time through the use of computational platforms. State-of-the-art computational platforms allow for the use of high-performance, CPU intensive control procedures.
