What is the challenge? 

The electric power systems are going through a transition that encompass digitalization, decentralization, and decarbonization. This will lead to more resilient power grids due to 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.

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.
