Abstract

Under increasing time-to-market pressures in the electric drives industries, the development time of new algorithms and new control systems including their debugging time must be minimized. This requirement can be satisfied only by using a well-defined system-level design methodology and by reducing the migration time between the algorithm development language and the hardware specification language. In this study, we propose to apply the SpecC methodology to the design of control systems for power electronics and electric drives. We first begin with an executable specification model of the control device. Then, we describe the different steps and transformations used to convert this model to a communication model and finally into an implementation model ready for manufacturing.
