Is there a tutorial on PIL Implementation?

0 votes

I know there is a PIL demo video available online with NPC-Solar inverter but I do have some questions:

1. is there any more detailed or simpler example available (i.e simple sine waveform/signal generation from MCU output to PLECS scope)? From the currently available source code for NPC-Solar inverter, it is difficult to parse what is needed and what isn't. 

2. Also, how does one use the PILPREPTOOL.exe? 

3. do I run PILPREPTOOL.exe manually in the CCS workspace?

4. Where should I save the PILPREPTOOL.exe? I tried to build the source code in CCS, but it is prompting an error called "" pil_symbols_c.c /npc-solar_28379 line 28 C/C++ Problem"

My pilpretool.exe is saved in path: C:\PIL\Tools\1.2\win32\pilpreptool.exe while the project is saved in path: C:\PIL\TI\C2000\5.1\npc-solar\28379


I am currently using the TI F28379D launchpad. 

Thank you for addressing these questions.
