Great progress has been made in recent years to develop appropriate mathematical constructs, solvers and frameworks that address the unique challenges of high fidelity, high speed real-time simulation of grid-tied switched-mode power converters and power grids using hybrid-FPGA devices.
Join us to learn about the frontiers of real-time power simulation, including:
- Motivation for developing FPGA-based simulation technology
- Demonstration of FPGA-based simulation and control
- Demonstration of a 30-km, three conductor transmission line simulation
- Development of a new megawatt size digital dynamometer inverters
- Demonstration of a battery Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation systems
