Ensuring safe and optimized operation of novel hybrid battery technologies is difficult, particularly when developing a first demonstration prototype. This blog shows how a digital twin model of the integrated Amorphous Organic Redox-Flow Battery (AORFB) and Lithium Titanate (LTO) battery container in the HYBRIS project is used to develop and train Energy Management System (EMS) controls considering real site conditions.

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on making marine power systems more energy efficient and green. One way to achieve this is through hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, a technique that allows engineers to validate control algorithms for optimization of efficient energy use and that supports the integration of various distributed energy resources (DERs) into a well-functioning whole. Read this blog to learn more from our demonstrations on how the challenges of making greener marine microgrids can be addressed with digital twins and HIL real-time simulation.

Communication is often an afterthought when designing or deploying new distributed energy resource (DER) projects. In practice, though, these communication issues can make or break integration projects when deployed to the energy grid. See how HIL Compatible devices together with model-based system engineering (MBSE) can be used to safely validate communication and control issues prior to system deployment with real hardware, and drastically simplify the integration and commissioning process of new renewables, microgrids, and virtual power plants (VPPs).
