Join us at BOOTH 2245 at the San Diego Convention Center for the 2023 DISTRIBUTECH International® conference! We’ll be demonstrating new capabilities for real-time simulation—THE GTSOC.
“DISTRIBUTECH International is the leading annual transmission and distribution event that addresses technologies used to move electricity from the power plant through the transmission and distribution systems to the meter and inside the home or business. Read more about Distributech HERE.
The GTSOC, a new auxiliary hardware for the RTDS Simulator, facilitates the deterministic integration of vendor control models into the real-time power system simulation while protecting intellectual property.
The GTSOC features a powerful FPGA board with multi-processor system-on-a-chip technology to support this challenging application.
The ability to black-box vendor controls and include them in a hardware-in-the-loop testbed is increasingly important for interoperability testing and de-risking inverter-based resources on the modern grid.
