STATCOM and Beyond: Exploring Real Time Power Electronics Simulation and CHIL Testing with the RTDS Simulator

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 10:00 AM CST

This exciting webinar will introduce you to the theory of modelling power electronics with the RTDS Simulator, the models available in the RSCAD software library, and the development and implementation of control systems in both the simulated and physical environments. Watch our live control-hardware-in-the-loop demo, where we’ll show you how to implement a STATCOM controller on an out-of-the-box microcontroller development kit. Then we’ll interface the controller with the simulation in a closed loop.

Webinar Topics:

  • Modelling techniques and challenges for small timestep simulation
  • Interfacing the simulation with external devices
  • Small timestep models available in RSCAD
  • Recent developments in power electronics simulation
  • Demonstration: STATCOM with controls simulated in RSCAD
  • Demonstration: STATCOM with external controls implemented on out-of-the-box Texas Instruments F28069 Piccolo Experimenter Kit
