This Paper discusses Power Hardware-in-the-Loop simulations from an important point of view: an intrinsic and integral part of PHIL simulation – the power amplification. In various publications PHIL is discussed either in a very theoretical approach or it is briefly featured as the used method. In neither of these publication types the impact of the power amplification to the total PHIL simulation is discussed deeply. This paper extends this discussion into the comparison of three different power amplification units and their usability for PHIL simulations. Finally in the conclusion it is discussed which type of power amplification is best for which type of PHIL experiment.
