Free Webinar: Introduction to Real-Time Simulation and HIL Testing for Power System Innovators

Sept. 11, 2023
Everything you’ve wanted to know about hardware-in-the-loop testing and its potential to de-risk the energy transition.

Real-time power system simulation and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing are the focus of more conversations in our industry than ever before. These tools have revolutionized the way that engineers study power systems and test the control, automation, and protection devices that ensure a secure, reliable, and efficient grid. This free webinar recording offered by RTDS Technologies will help power system professionals understand this technology and the role that real-time simulation and HIL testing are playing in de-risking the grid of tomorrow.

Hardware-in-the-loop testing allows power system professionals to de-risk the integration of novel systems, anticipate and mitigate negative interactions, and optimize device performance by connecting real devices to a simulated network. Inverter-based resources and other grid modernization technologies can create vulnerabilities that conventional modelling and testing processes are blind to. Hardware-in-the-loop testing allows engineers to anticipate these issues, preventing misoperation and negative interactions which may result in outages or damaged equipment. This proven technology is used for testing transmission and distribution protection and automation, inverter controls, HVDC and FACTS, smart grid, cybersecurity measures, and more.

This free recorded webinar introduces the motivation for real-time simulation and HIL testing, the hardware and software required for these projects, and exciting real-world examples of successful application of the technology by utilities, equipment manufacturers, research institutions, universities, and consultants. Hardware-in-the-loop testing with the RTDS Simulator increases reliability, resilience, and performance. In the hands of innovators, it’s changing the grid as we know it
