This presentation will highlight the 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.
