RTDS Technologies is pleased to announce that the University of Alberta has officially selected the RTDS Simulator as the technology of choice for their real time simulation laboratory at the Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering. The University of Alberta will receive a powerful RTDS Simulator comprised of two NovaCor chassis with a total of seven licensed cores, as well as both conventional and ethernet-based I/O components for interfacing external hardware. The Simulator will be used as a key tool for transmission level studies and the modelling of power systems with both AC and DC components, including the modelling of LCC, VSC, and modular multilevel converters.
The University of Alberta is now one of over 170 universities and research institutions worldwide using the RTDS Simulator for testing control and protection systems and simulating power systems at the transmission and distribution level. Their new Donadeo Innovation Centre for Engineering will be a hub of research activity, providing great opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration among professors and students.
