Webinar: Hardware, Software and Applications for Real Time Evaluation & Testing of The Evolving Smart Power Grid

June 15 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Abstract: “Keeping the lights on”, an axiom in power systems engineering has taken on a new level of complexity with increasing pressure on the existing network to deliver more power over existing infrastructure. The RTDS Real Time Digital Simulator is a powerful tool in adapting new technology to the power grid, through control hardware, and power (CHIL, PHIL) hardware in the loop testing in real time. The custom-developed hardware allows simulation to de done in parallel with maximum speed and efficiency. Combined with the user-friendly GUI and industry-approved simulation results, engineers can validate the performance of the evolving power system and de-risk deployment. The first component of this presentation will take the audience through the hardware and software that provides this simulation platform, then applied to various power systems applications in real time. The second presentation presents the development and testing of a wide-area measurement based transient stability prediction system using the RTDS system and applying intentional islanding to prevent large-scale blackouts.
