Understanding inter-IBR oscillations in microgrids using PHIL

Juan Felipe Patarroyo, power systems simulation specialist at OPAL-RT Technologies and Nayeem Ninad, research engineer at CanmetEnergy in Varennes, Canada, explore how power hardware-in-the-loop (PHIL) can help grid operators, researchers, system planners and associated stakeholders understand inter-IBR oscillations in microgrids. As … [Read more...]

How Hardware-in-the-Loop Drives Microgrid Control Innovation

Thomas Kirk, senior applications engineer at OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES, explores Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL), a new test technique for microgrids involving digital real-time simulation. With the promise of improved efficiency and resiliency, and a reduced carbon footprint, the total capacity and spending on microgrids is projected to quintuple by … [Read more...]
