What is the challenge? 

 

The electric power systems are going through a transition that encompasses digitalization, decentralization, and decarbonization. This will lead to more resilient power grids due to the higher adoption of digital technologies, renewable power sources, and new battery storage systems. Everyone will benefit from the enhanced control, efficiency, and maintenance capabilities, but it all has to start from smart test-driven design. There is a need for integrated solutions to improve power system performance which will be data-based, so the systems are built with the end specs in mind and thoroughly tested throughout all possible test scenarios in an automated manner.
