In this paper, control engineering design using hardware in the loop is approached. For a better understanding, the first part of the paper clarifies the concepts of Rapid Prototyping, Models in the Loop (MIL), Software in the Loop (SIL) and Hardware in the Loop (HIL). For the different forms of “loop”, the general model and possible applications are presented. In the last part of the paper, an application regarding a hydro power system control is modeled and simulated using Simulink-dSPACE platform. The results show the benefits of using rapid prototyping of systems in the case of control design.
