Improve Performance of 
Distribution Automation Systems

The RTDS Simulator allows real distribution system assets to be connected to the simulated grid in a closed loop for safe and comprehensive testing, and optimization prior to deployment.

De-risk HVDC
& FACTS Devices

The RTDS Simulator is used by all of the major HVDC & FACTS manufacturers to perform Factory Systems Testing of their control systems, and by utilities to support the pre-commissioning process and de-risk changes through the project’s lifetime.
