Research Paper: Synchronized Real-Time Simulation of Distributed Networked Controls for a Power System Case Study

By Abhishek Jain, Colorado State University, Fort Collins

Masters Engineering student Abhishek Jain and his professors at the Colorado State University Energy and Engines Lab used an OrionLX to initiate fault isolation and restoration functions within a simulated 26KV microgrid feeder.


From the Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to develop and implement a distributed networked control framework for a power system simulation. The study addresses and improves upon speed and accuracy of simulation for computationally intensive power system dynamic simulations and distributed control utilizing Hardware-In-Loop (HIL) simulations.
