MOSFET Real-time Power Losses Calculation

paragraph

Expand converter real-time power losses calculation with thermal model to simulate junction temperatures

 

  • Non-idealities of the semiconductor devices will be included with the Forward Voltage Drop feature
  • Calculation of switching and conduction losses in the real time based on the look-up table
  • Simple parametrization of 3D look-up table:​
    • User-specific look-up table can be created
    • Data-sheet parameters for Switch and Diode can be imported as .XML file
  • Expand converters real time power loss calculation with thermal model to simulate junction temperatures​

Grid Code Requirements Testing

Grid Support Functionality

paragraph

Generic DER Components can support standardized low voltage ride-through (LVRT) requirements 

 

  • During the LVRT event: DER will stay connected required period of time and will support the grid with active and reactive power
  • Injecting reactive power to the grid will increase the voltage value
  • Configuration reactive power contribution through SCADA input
  • Standardized LVRT requirements

User-Friendly SCADA panel

HIL SCADA Model Explorer

paragraph

A new dock in HIL SCADA shows all model variables from the opened model​

 

  • Option to bring command or signal direct to SCADA panel
  • Change the panel building perspective from widget-oriented to signal-oriented
  • Especially useful for first-time users

Easy Access to Example Models
