In order to verify the control system object code without any real hardware system, it is preferable to use PIL simulation in the lab environment. With this methodology, the lab user can use the simulation software on computer to communicate with the Mirco-controller unit which is the MCU. By this way of communication and simulation, it will save time and cost to test algorithm or get familiar with some system fast and accurate. The task of the project was divided mainly into two parts, which are design the simulation system through the software PLECS and running the PIL simulation with the MCU communizing with the software on computer. It take the author’s time to get use to the new software and the MCU since it was the first time dealing with those components. And there were many problems when designing the system, and one thing took the author long time to figure out, which is to connect the software to the MCU. But with all the effort and time cost on the project, by doing researches and under the help of the supervisor and other lab technicians, the system was designed smoothly and the result shows that the system and the MCU can talk correctly with correct outcome. By the end of the project, a PIL simulation system with a PM motor can be used for other group of people to use. And for people who are going to work on the real hardware PM or IM motor, this could be a pre-operation for them to get familiar with those motors.
