As power electronic systems (PESs) grow increasingly complex, integrating and testing these systems in the development stages is becoming more crucial and more challenging. New modes and resource integration strategies are in development and must be tested before pilot demonstrations and mass production. This paper proposes a framework for testing of PES technologies including early validation with integration of simulated resources. The framework is demonstrated to work in two example configurations as proof of principle.
