What to Expect

Join us for a free webinar where we’ll explore the latest developments related to the implementation of IEC 61850 GOOSE Messaging on the RTDS Simulator. These new features will significantly improve the experience and results for power engineers performing real-time simulation and hardware-in-the-loop testing with IEC 61850-compliant protection and control systems.

The webinar will focus on the new GSEv7 component for GOOSE protocol simulation and the new IED Configuration Tool (ICT), which has significant enhancements and flexibility compared to the previous Substation Configuration Description file Editor.

  • Get a brief overview of the hardware and software aspects of communication protocol implementation for real-time simulators
  • Learn the details of the RTDS Simulator’s new GSEv7 component and ICT facility
  • Watch a software demonstration via RSCAD screenshare
  • Q&A with an expert in IEC 61850

Note: This webinar does not include a detailed introduction to electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation or real-time operation. To learn more about these topics, listeners should watch this short video before joining.
