RTPSS Lab - Real Time Power Systems Simulation Laboratory

DESCRIPTION

The RTPSS LAB was designed to enable the simulation and testing of both power systems and communication networks, either in a stand-alone mode or by performing co-simulation.
The major assets of the laboratory include RTPSS for power systems simulation and HIL testing of physical devices. Besides, other relevant equipment existing in the laboratory includes:
- Communication networks simulator and testing tools
- IEC 61850 specification, configuration and testing tools/equipment
- Time synchronization servers
- Power amplifiers
The communication infrastructure of the laboratory allows optical fibre and Ethernet connections, bringing great flexibility and allowing the test of devices such as IEDs or PMUs with great simplicity in a plug-and-play environment. Other existing communication network devices are state of the art (e.g. routers, switches), ensuring accurate testing of a wide range of communication protocols.

AREAS OF SPECIAL COMPETENCE

Modelling, real-time simulation and testing of large power systems and smart energy systems
Communication networks simulation and testing (+co-simulation)
IEC 61850 Specification, configuration and testing, including time synchronization

WHAT CAN BE TESTED

- Prototype development and product conformance testing, including protection and automation systems
- Hardware-in-Loop (HIL) simulations
- Model verification
- Power system transient studies and analysis
- Performing co-simulation
