Simulating Microgrids with OPAL-RT’s Real Time Platforms


Contrary to classic grids that self-regulate relatively easily, microgrids integrate intermittent and unreliable renewable energy sources. This type of energy, that we do not directly control (we cannot make the sun shine brighter or the wind blow softer), therefore requires complex control systems to regulate flow of the grid’s power, voltage and frequency.Read Press Release
