Research Abstract

The system integration of any kind of new power equipment requires testing the system under various operational scenarios, to assure that the system works as planned. This is usually done by pure simulations, mainly due to the fact that real experiments have the issues of costs, safety, and feasibility. However, with the Power-Hardware-in-the-Loop technology, these issues have been resolved and with this technology, actual hardware can be tested under real conditions. The EnergyLab 2.0 project aims for a Power-Hardware-in-the-Loop test facility of 1 MVA in order to investigate the behavior of new technologies and new network structures. The aim of my work is to develop real-time simulation models and perform Power-Hardware-in-the-Loop testing on most novel energy storage systems to be connected to the distribution network.
