Abstract

This application note explains a two areas, four machines power system is considered in this note in order to demonstrate numerical advantages of ARTEMIS’ fixed-step-size integration method versus Tustin method currently used by power system simulators such as Power System Blockset (PSB). Proposed methods are also compared to the variable step solver, which is supposed to give the closest response to the actual system’s one.

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. To accommodate the high bandwidth of electrical systems, the RT-LAB Electrical Drive Simulator comes with special Simulink-based modeling tools, namely ARTEMIS and RT-EVENTS that permits real-time simulation of electrical systems at practical time step of 10 µs but with sub-µs equivalent precision through the use of interpolation techniques.

Abstract

This presentation presents the challenges of simulating electric drives and Opal-RT's vision for the next decade, it shows the real-time simulators' evolution, requirements and technology trends. Then, distributed multi-rate HIL simulation and test systems as well as self-contained energy generation and distribution system simulation are discussed. Finally, the need for real-time simulation is exposed and the typical RT-LAB high-fidelity real-time simulator configurations are demonstrated.

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.
