What to Expect

Join RTDS Technologies for a free webinar on real-time simulation and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing. This webinar is geared at power system professionals looking to learn the fundamentals of real-time electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation and the value this technology can have for grid modernization projects.

This webinar will provide:

  • Background on the theory and benefits of EMT simulation, real-time simulation and HIL testing for power systems engineers
  • Overview of real-time simulator hardware and software
  • Applications
  • Examples of real-world projects
  • Q&A with a simulation specialist


HIL testing with the RTDS Simulator has been applied by power system innovators worldwide to enable a secure global energy transition via grid modernization. Real-time simulation enables the comprehensive testing of protection, control, and power equipment via connection to a simulated network in the safety of a lab environment. This allows engineers to validate device operation, anticipate vulnerabilities, and optimize performance prior to deployment on the grid. Learn about the basics and benefits of real-time electromagnetic transient simulation, the equipment required for hardware-in-the-loop testing, and real-world examples of successful projects in this exciting webinar.
