Enhanced End-to-End Real-Time SILHIL Workflows with ETAP and ePHASORSIM

Enhanced End-to-End Real-Time SILHIL Workflows with ETAP and ePHASORSIM

The ETAP/ePHASORSIM hybrid power system solution is ideally suited for installing and certifying any new device on the grid for protection, monitoring and control, thus reducing risk and costly commissioning time—as well as validation of reliability and security of any transmission, distribution and generation grid before implementation. Users can simulate SIL and HIL scenarios in real time, greatly reducing time-to-market. We will demonstrate the time-savings and value of this solution by exporting an ETAP model to ePHASORsim and controlling it in closed-loop with ETAP’s controller hardware.  To fine-tune the response, we will change the ETAP model, export again, the re-start the simulation—a cycle commonly observed in testing environments. 

Microgrid Design & Analysis

Microgrid Design & Analysis

Microgrid Analysis & Design is an essential step for Microgrid Implementation. Upfront design and analysis of the target microgrid system, whether for brownfield or green-field Microgrid implementation, can help drive both technical and financial benefits, including determining optimized generation assets required to meet the microgrid objectives as well as a projection of return on investments. Analysis & design from safety, reliability, and financial perspective are critical for successful microgrid implementation to minimize the impact and rework during the installation phase. This presentation will provide recommendations on best practices for Microgrid Analysis & Design.

Unit Capability Validation, an Analytical Approach for MOD-25 Compliance

Unit Capability Validation, an Analytical Approach for MOD-25 Compliance

It is crucial to define the reactive power limits to evaluate the voltage support available under normal, abnormal and emergency operations with the unit's safe functioning. Published generator thermal capabilities curves, produced by the manufacturer, define the limits for safe operation based on the generator design's thermal limitations. Practically, the available reactive capability differs from the published equipment curves due to plant specific design and operating constraints. This presentation discusses a theoretical approach utilizing a simplified electrical distribution system and an ETAP model to identify and validate the plant-specific unit capability. 

Planning, Design, and Validation of a Microgrid using ETAP Digital Twin Platform

Planning, Design, and Validation of a Microgrid using ETAP Digital Twin Platform

The implementation of a Microgrid involve several stages, in which the engineer has to deal with the interaction of different processes and dynamics, taking into account the different modes, topologies and scenarios that the system could possibly have. This is the case of an ongoing project for an important Grid operator in Colombia, in which PTI S.A and OTI are working together to deliver a comprehensive Monitoring and Control system for an entire Microgrid, comprised of different energy resources as Diesel, Solar, Batteries and a connection to the Public Grid. Project stages involve Planning, Design, Validation, In site Deployment and Testings, and for that purposes, Etap PS/RT and Opal RT solutions will be used, on a Digital Twin Platform environment.
