OPAL-RT INDIA WEBINAR | Real-Time Simulation of Microgrids: Challenges and Opportunities

Presented by OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES India, learn in this webinar the importance of precise and accurate Real-Time Simulation of Microgrids, which are becoming an important facet of today’s power systems in every part of the world.

The integration of renewable energy sources is becoming critical in today’s power systems and is becoming a significant challenge, because of the variety and complexity of the sources in the realm of power system dynamics. As the world begins to appreciate the advantages of harnessing renewable resources, the difficulties it presents for power electronics control is increasing daily. Researchers and industry experts need a platform on which to perform detailed analysis and implementation of microgrid simulations, with the ability to achieve fast and accurate results. This webinar explores these challenges and opportunities.


Tej Kiran Rangineedi
EMS Specialist

Mr. Tej completed his master’s program in the field of Power Electronics and Systems from Manipal University in the year 2014 and has been working for OPAL-RT since then. During his stay, he developed various models to demonstrate the technical aspects of modeling electrical systems using OPAL-RT tools for both internal/external customers. Tej also worked on consultation projects from external customers like GE, GTRE for modeling and simulation roles. Tej has a handful of experience on projects pertaining to motors and converters.

Presentation Abstract:
Mr. Tej will present on the traditional microgrid technology and its recent transformations. He will try to bridge the link between the real-time simulation aspects as an important step forward to end goal objectives. He will also provide information on the role of OPAL-RT Technologies for the microgrid simulations.

Mr. Bharadwaj Rangachar
Field Application Engineer

Mr. Bharadwaj obtained his master’s degree in electrical drives in 2016. He has been working in OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES as a field application engineer since then. His area of interest is motor control and power converters.

Presentation Abstract:
Mr. Bharadwaj will discuss the basics of real-time simulation and the benefits of using real-time simulation and then discuss real-time simulation of microgrids, the challenges and opportunities that they present. We will have a demonstration of a microgrid model being executed in real time.
