Microgrid Toolbox

Schematic Editor components available through the Microgrid Toolbox

The Microgrid Toolboox is an additional toolbox containing a growing collection of ubiquitous microgrid device models. Its main purpose is to enable you to accelerate the process of building microgrid models for simulation and analyzis, allowing you to fully concentrate on the system and/or device under test, be it a microgrid controller, a DER controller, a protection relay, or another device. The Microgrid Toolbox enables early tests of microgrid controllers, communication protocols, device-to-device interactions, and system design with the use of complete models of DERs, loads, protection devices, gensets, and many others. These models can be executed in a great range of tests that cover different operation scenarios of a Microgrid.

Table 1 lists all Schematic Editor components available through unlocking the Microgrid Toolbox. To check the models available in another toolbox, please refer to the Schematic Editor Toolboxes documentation.
