2017 China User’s Group Meeting a huge success!
RTDS Technologies would like to thank everyone who participated in last month’s 2017 China User’s Group Meeting! The meeting took place  October 25, 26 & 27 in Beijing, China. It was a great opportunity for Simulator users to share their work, hear about many exciting new applications and advancements of the RTDS Simulator, as well as connect with RTDS Technologies staff and Simulation Specialists and network with other users from their region.
Feng-Xue-NARIThe three day event was filled with a wide variety of presentations by both RTDS Simulator users and RTDS Technologies staff. Each day was opened with a keynote speech by industry leaders in China. Dr. Feng Xue from NARI, kicked off the event with his presentation titled “System Level Control Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing and Verification of Large UHV AC and DC Power Systems Based on RTDS”.  Dr. Shuyong Li from CSG addressed delegates on the second day with his presentation on the application of the RTDS Simulator in CSG main power grid studies. The third day was opened by Dr. Xie Xiaorong from Tsinghua University who presented on “Analysis and control of sub-synchronous oscillation in power systems”.
The meeting featured seventeen different user presentations from a wide variety of Simulator users from Chinese electric power utilities, power system equipment manufacturers, universities, and research institutions. This diversity in user perspective created an excellent opportunity for knowledge sharing between those involved in different facets of the power industry. User presentation topics included the simulation of power electronics, simulation of sub-synchronous oscillation in grid integrated with windpower, the use of the Simulator for portable AVR field performance testing, modeling and simulation of large scale control systems with Simulink and CBuilder, and much more. You can access presentations from the event on our Technical Publications page. 
The UGM also featured presentations by RTDS Technologies staff, focusing mostly on recent hardware and software developments and new applications of the RTDS Simulator. Topics included new developments in protection and automation, including the release of the new Protection & Automation Suite, power electronics applications,  the release of GPES, as well as the new PSCAD to RSCADconversion tool.
As is customary during our User’s Group Meetings around the world, attendees enjoyed an evening network event, including a theatrical show and dinner. Enjoy browsing pictures from the event!
