The potential of Digital Twins is undeniable. Imagine being able to replicate a system and, through doing this, possibly predict its future. In the context of a power grid, this invaluable insight could mean avoiding difficult blackouts, improving operational efficiency, and revolutionizing asset management. As power grids become more decentralized operating near their operational limits, the value of such knowledge becomes even more significant.
Using today’s computational resources and advanced models, OPAL-RT has the capability to create high-fidelity digital twins of power systems for both real-time and accelerated applications. This new simulation technology will benefit utilities, research laboratories and manufacturers in new ways, enabling planning and operation activities with fresh insight and an overall greatly increased output capacity.
