Applications and benefits
OpSim can be used to develop and test smart grid controller prototypes, before they are applied in laboratory and field tests (“controller-in-the-loop” testing).
- Bugs in the controller can be found prior to laboratory and field tests.
- Controllers can be tested over several days in simulated real-time operation (load testing).
- Robustness testing of the controller with faulty/missing data or simulated network delays.
