Abstract

This paper presents the RT-LAB Electrical Drive Simulator technology along with practical applications. The RT-LAB simulation software enables the parallel simulation of an electrical circuit on clusters of PC running QNX or RT-Linux operating systems at sample time below 10 µs. Using standard Simulink models including SimPowerSystems models, RT-LAB build computation and communication tasks necessary to effectively make parallel simulation of electrical systems with low cost off-the-shelf PC technology.

This paper presents a real-time motor drive simulator capable to accurately simulate a double IGBT bridge inverter connected to an induction motor through an inter phase transformer. The simulator also includes a DC link model with regeneration capability and two choppers. The paper will detail the implementation of the model and simulation results and timing. The whole system, with external I/O IGBT fiber optic gate signals, executes in real-time at 80 µs time step under the RT-LAB real-time distributed simulation software on a PC cluster composed of three Pentium processors running at 1 GHz.

Abstract

This paper describes a real-time simulator of wind turbine generator system suitable for controller design and tests. The simulated generator is a grid-connected doubly fed induction machine with back-to-back PWM voltage source vector control of the rotor. The simulator is based on RT-LAB real-time simulation platform that allows for easy model-to-real-time-target design from Simulink models. The paper puts special emphasis on the fixed-step simulation problematic of kHz-range PWM inverter drives and the techniques used in the real-time simulator to accurately simulate those drives.

Abstract

This application note (Part 3) explains the design and optimization of fast PWM energy conversion control systems is time-consuming when the power electronics converters (PEC) are simulated in detail. Variable-step integration algorithms, or fixed time step integration at every microsecond, are required.
