This paper proposes an algorithm development and test procedure for power electronics and power system research by using simulation, hardware in the loop simulation and electrical experiments. A flexible and reconfigurable experimental setup is introduced in this paper first and problems of power electronics and power system research related are identified. The importance of the simulation especially the real time hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation is emphasized in this paper and a complete design procedure is proposed and analyzed in detail. By using the proposed procedure, the research and test cycle can be greatly reduced. The algorithm development can also be standardized according to design requirements. A converter control case shows the whole design procedure and verifies the effectiveness of the proposed design procedure.
