Watch our webinar on exciting new capabilities in real-time simulation: the inclusion of black box control models. The GTSOC, a new auxiliary hardware for the RTDS Simulator, facilitates the deterministic integration of vendor control models into the real-time power system simulation while protecting intellectual property. The GTSOC features a powerful FPGA board with multi-processor system-on-a-chip technology to support this challenging application. The ability to black-box vendor controls and include them in a hardware-in-the-loop testbed is increasingly important for interoperability testing and de-risking inverter-based resources on the modern grid.
This webinar includes a demonstration in collaboration with SMA Solar Technology AG, an inverter vendor. A black box version of SMA’s proprietary controller has been implemented on the GTSOC. In the demo, watch how the GTSOC running SMA’s controls is used to control battery energy storage system (BESS) inverters in the real-time simulation.
