In March 2017, Scotland’s National HVDC Centre will open its doors. The state-of-the-art training and simulation facility will focus its research on HVDC transmission – and the RTDS Simulator is at the heart of the operation. The National HVDC Centre will feature a 9 rack RTDS Simulator containing 45 PB5 processor cards and 15 MMC Support Units for the simulation of Modular Multi-level Converters. The Centre will also be home to vendor-supplied Multi-Terminal HVDC Replica Controls. The goal of the National HVDC Centre is to be a collaborative facility and a hub for knowledge exchange, renowned for its support of HVDC transmission solutions in Great Britain. We are so pleased that the RTDS Simulator will be a part of this groundbreaking project.
The RTDS Simulator is featured in both issues of the National HVDC Centre’s Newsletter, which can be accessed here.
