Dynamic Simulation of Electric Machines on FPGA Boards

In this paper the authors present the implementation of an induction machine dynamic simulation on a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) board. Using FPGAs as computational engines can lead to significant simulation speed gains when compared to a typical PC computer, especially when operations can be efficiently parallelized on the board. The textbook example of a free acceleration followed by a step load change is used to outline the basic steps of designing an explicit Runge - Kutta numerical Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) solver on the FPGA platform.
