Altivar 6000 is a variable speed drive developed to address MV market. In addition to build a real test bench for physical real testing of this offer, we have decided to setup an automatic Hardware-in-the-Loop test bench for unitary tests, system tests, and non-regression tests of control/command hardware and software functions. The drive control board is connected through a dedicated interface to the real-time environment running physical models of the MV Power system, motor, and application. The bench automation lies on computer engineered environment for automatic configuration and test scripts running and allows to test 272 product references from 2.4 to 13.8 kV, from 160 to 20 MW.
