A 3D architecture platform dedicated to high-speed computation for power system
This paper presents an innovative 3D hardware architecture for power system dynamic and transient stability. Based on an intrinsic parallel architecture by means of mixedsignal circuits (analog and digital) it overcomes the speed of numerical simulators for given models. This approach does not competing the accuracy and model complexity of the high performance numerical simulators. It intends to complement them with the advantage of speed, low-cost, portability and autonomous functions. The presented architecture provides an ultra-high speed platform by means of emulation principle. The proof of concept is an array of 4x24 nodes reconfigurable platform. Hardware details and comparisons with a reference digital simulator are given.
