OPAL-RT has created a most unique simulation solvers specifically designed for microgrid, distribution systems and complex drive: ARTEMiS-SSN. It provides fast and accurate real-time simulation of such systems, using the most advanced processors and without introducing artificial delays.
ARTEMiS-SSN optimizes all electric system models using an advanced decoupling technique called state-space nodal method. It virtually decouples large systems of state-space equations into smaller groups, whose solutions can be obtained simultaneously by using a nodal admittance method similar to the one found in well-known simulation software such as EMTP-RV. The resulting algorithm is much similar to EMTP-type ones except that part of the algorithms can be solved in parallel, on different processors, without adding any artificial delays in the solution.
