OPAL-RT & NI Success Story

In one of Canada's most ambitious Electric Vehicle infrastructure projects, the University of Toronto’s Centre for Applied Power Electronics (CAPE) partnered with energy storage company eCAMION to build a DC Fast-Charging System (DCFCS) for EV charging stations on the Trans-Canada Highway, one of the world’s longest highways. The engineering team’s use of OPAL-RT’s FPGA-Based Power Electronics Toolbox (eHS) expedited the development process, lowered the development costs and reduced the safety risks inherent in developing the systems at high voltage and currents.
