Abstract This study proposes a hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS) system based on National Instruments’ PXI platform to test power management and operation strategies for DC microgrids (MGs). The HILS system is developed based on the controller HIL prototype, which involves testing the controller board in hardware with a real-time simulation model of the plant in a real-time digital simulator. The system provides an economical and effective testing function for research on MG systems. The decentralized power management strategy based on the DC bus signaling method for DC MGs has been developed and implemented on the HILS platform. HILS results are determined to be similar to those of the off-line simulation in PSIM software.
