Real Time Seminar in Aachen
E.ON Energy Research Center, RWTH Universität und OPAL-RT hosted a real time seminar in Aachen on Monday, 28th of Septemer 2015. This seminar dealt with the real-time simulation of power grids and power electronic systems.
It focused on the simulation of fast and complex control systems. The visitors learned how to use hardware-in-the-loop simulation and rapid control prototyping testing to easily validate various types of controls and applications. Concrete methods and examples were explained by OPAL-RT and E.ON Energy Research Center based on actual and upcoming innovative projects. The highlight of the day was the visit of E.ON Energy Research Center / RWTH Aachen University’s R&D Lab in Aachen, where Prof. Antonello Monti and the research team are working on prototyping control systems and new control algorithms for applications in power systems.
