Typhoon HIL wins ESTCP contract to aid DOD with the future of microgrid design

 

The provision of secure, reliable, and resilient energy and water is critical to ensuring mission execution at our military installations. Over the last 8 years, the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) – DoD's environmental technology demonstration and validation program – has deployed innovative technologies designed to improve energy security, increase backup power reliability, and support critical loads during extended electrical grid outages. One of the most promising technologies in this sector is microgrids. These systems can reduce operating costs behind the meter and generate revenue by providing services to utilities and/or participating in energy markets.

Load Flow for a Better Way to Design Microgrids and Power Systems

OpenDSSblog

OpenDSS software integration brings power flow with a seamless transition to real-time, deterministic analysis.

 

In response to the DoD Digital Engineering Strategy (2018), the US Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) funded Typhoon HIL to demonstrate the Integrated Model-Based Design Process (IMBDP) for affordable, scalable, and resilient DoD installation microgrids.

Story Highlights

  • Application: Fuji Electric’s Kobe site uses the Typhoon HIL platform for their Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) development.
  • Challenge: To overcome the typical limitations of open-loop and offline simulations in the early product testing stage, as well as the limitations of the high-power tests in the late product testing stage.
  • Solution: The adoption of controller Hardware-in-the-Loop (C-HIL) made it easy to develop and debug new control software functionality, as well as verify the operation in cases that are difficult to reproduce in a high-power lab.
  • Result: Typhoon HIL reduced the time and cost of UPS control development and increased test coverage.
  • HIL Tested means quick reliable results with lower costs and higher flexibility.

Building A Better Microgrid - Schneider Electric Microgrids

LinkedIN Posts-01

 

This article is the third in a series from the Microgrid Conference Panel 2019 – Making Sure Your Microgrid Will Work: Risk Reduction with Controller Hardware In the Loop (C-HIL) and Model-based Engineering

Andy Haun, CTO of Schneider Electric’s microgrid business, was one of the panelists at the Microgrid Conference 2019. He has led many key product development and technical innovations at Schneider Electric to simplify and enable effective grid-edge solutions including battery-based energy storage with highly-efficient inverters for distributed energy resources.

Andy talked about how Schneider Electric used model-based system engineering and microgrid Hardware-in-the-Loop testing for designing and testing power systems controls.
