HA Testing with MSA2012FC and 8/20Q switches

I'm writing a couple of procedures for testing our HA storage environment and basically want to test a failover in the event of a failure of either one of our 8/20q switches and either one of the controllers in our MSA 2012FC.
Whats the best way for each device - should I simply power each 8/20q (one at a time of course) or is there a better way? Likewise I just intend to shutdown each controller on the MSA - again is there a better way of doing this?

Simon,
powering off switches is ok, if you want to see, how your environment will work after brownout. You can also try to disable ports on a switch, it's little less extreme method.
As for shutdown of controllers, you can do it via CLI.
