Hardware in the Loop for the Future Grid


This webinar is an introduction into the challenges, methods, and tools to optimize your control software for power electronics converters operating in the changing grid. Watch the video to learn how hardware in the loop simulation techniques are changing the power electronics and power systems industries. We will show you the basics of real-time HIL modeling of a microgrid, including smart inverter modeling, diesel genset modeling, short transmission line modeling and protective relay modeling. We will highlight how distributed energy resources affect one another.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Smart inverter and microgrid testing challenges and methods to overcome them
  • Simulation of multiple Distributed Energy Resources (DER) controlled with real controllers, with 1 microsecond time step
  • Controller testing against grid faults using Python scripts to thoroughly test all possible corner cases before ever using real power
