Project runs from 08/01/2017 to 12/31/2019
There are three main objectives of the NCSU 2019 project:
1. OPAL-RT HIL system technologies transfer to Total Lyon (Q1-Q2)
2. Faster than real time simulation in OPAL-RT/HIL (Q2-Q4)
3. MW-level microgrids modeling and simulation in the HIL system towards solar farm/refinery and/or island cases (Q2-Q4).
The completion of the technology transfer will enable the Total team to use the OPAL-RT HIL testing facilities at the NCSU GridWrx lab and replicate a similar OPAL-RT HIL test system at the Total Lyon test site. Technical extensions of the existing HIL testbed in faster-than-real-time simulation and MW-scale microgrid will allow cost benefit study to be conducted on the HIL testbed for both commercial and MW-scale microgrids considering the operation dynamics and coordination among different control systems.
