The Power System Simulator of Tomorrow

With the shift from centralized power generation to a grid featuring significant distributed energy resources (DER), the electric power grid is undergoing considerable change. Along with the integration of smart technologies, all with the potential to provide advanced real-time monitoring, control, and protection capabilities, this paradigm shift has dramatically increased the complexity of bulk and localized power systems. New technologies promise increased reliability and efficiency, but bring new and undeniable technological and integration challenges.

HYPERSIM provides engineers with the right tools to address these challenges, all through an advanced real-time simulation platform featuring Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing. Whether developing, integrating or testing new components or systems which require HIL, or simply tired of waiting hours for a few seconds of simulation, HYPERSIM provides the solution.

Benefit from a Simulator Backed by over 25 Years of Experience

HYPERSIM is the result of over 25 years of joint expert research by Hydro-Québec, Réseau de Transport d’Électricité (RTE) and China Electric Power Research Institute (CEPRI). Since 2010, OPAL-RT has been continually developing HYPERSIM into the most high-performance real-time power system simulator available. OPAL-RT engineers continue to collaborate closely with Hydro-Québec, ensuring that HYPERSIM continues to be at the forefront of innovation. HYPERSIM is now the standard among national laboratories, industrial R&D centers and utilities in the Americas, Asia and Europe.
