We are excited to announce our first-ever User Spotlight Series! This webinar-based event will showcase the work of RTDS Simulator Users worldwide each week during September 2020. Webinars will include two 20-minute presentations from users, followed by 10-minute Q&As, plus commentary from RTDS Technologies.
Adapted from our popular in-person User’s Group Meetings, the virtual User Spotlight Series is your opportunity to hear user success stories, learn about their challenges, and explore new applications.
Stay tuned for details on registration!
We are now accepting abstracts for presentations!
Presenters: Ralf Toma & Murat Sezer, Siemens AG
Abstract: Siemens presents the development of simplified generic wind turbine models in Simulink, the procedure of benchmarking these models for real-time simulation and the project test environment. Siemens will also present the SIL and HIL models of synchronous condenser excitation system in RTDS. The validation HIL and SIL will be shown on the plots. Furthermore no load step response test from substation will be validated against SIL & HIL test results.
Presenter: Ian Cowan, The National HVDC Centre
Abstract: This presentation will describe the practicalities of procuring, installing and interfacing HVDC control replicas at the National HVDC Centre in the summer of 2018. The presentation will also describe the subsequent use of the installed replicas to prove and test control measures required for integration of the Caithness-Moray VSC HVDC circuit into the weak AC network of the north of Scotland.
Presenter: Panos Kotsampopoulos, National Technical University of Athens
Abstract: PHIL and CHIL simulation is proving to be an efficient tool for education, research and testing. The development of hands-on laboratory exercises at NTUA using HIL simulation and experiential learning will be presented. The combination of CHIL and PHIL for testing smart grid control algorithms will be reported as well as the use of “testing chains” for system-level and component-level controllers. Most of the presented activities have been performed in the framework of the H2020 ERIGrid project.
Presenter: Amin Salmani, San Diego Gas & Electric
Abstract: In this presentation Amin Salmani will present RTDS activities within SDG&E, which includes SDG&E’s testbeds for microgrid controls, distribution protection and automation, and communication schemes in RT-HIL environment. This presentation will include in depth description of two of SDG&E’s most recent projects that have taken advantage of RTDS capabilities. Furthermore, Amin will briefly introduce the rest of RTDS oriented projects with describing/showing developed testbeds at SDG&E’s Integrated Test Facility (ITF).
