DiSC-OPAL: A Simulation Framework For Real-time Assessment of Distribution Grids

Publication: Research - peer-reviewArticle in proceeding

Abstract

Smart grid functionalities require developing, testing
and verification of complex systems in a realistic environment
that captures the three main domains: Control, ICT, and Electrical
Grid. Real-time simulations that can support hardware
in the loop methods have a pivotal role for modeling of such
systems. The simulation tool should be able to model Electrical
Grid and flexible assets with different time scales and resolution
levels fulfilling specific functionalities. In this paper DiSC-OPAL,
an OPAL-RT compatible toolbox library for modelling of assets
is presented. The library is suitable for demand response
and power/energy management applications. To demonstrate
its functionality and usage, active power management scenario
in real-time environment coupled with communication network
emulation is outlined.
