Due to weather changes and other external factors, we often consider renewable energy sources in microgrids to be variable resources. Also, they require complex, reliable control systems to regulate the flow and quality of power, voltage, and frequency. The greater the complexity of the systems, the more tests are required, all with greater accuracy than ever before. Real-time digital simulation enables researchers to study the effects of multiple scenarios. Indeed, they can test in near-real conditions and without risk, prior to deployment in the field
Microgrid simulation is only one of the multiple applications, you can work on thanks to the OPAL-RT simulators. Come and meet us to learn more about onboard power systems, power system controls, and power generation.
