Hardware-in-the-Loop Simulation Software for regulator tests and optimization
This paper presents a real-time extension, called SIMSEN-RT, of the simulation software SIMSEN. SIMSEN-RT allows carrying out hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations of power systems using hardware regulators. It can therefore be used to fine-tune regulator parameters or to test the regulator behavior in different operating conditions (emergency shutdown, islanded operation, etc.).
