Contract award: Expansion of Real-Time Power Grid Simulator for Large Scale Energy Storage and Real-time Control. General System Requirements: 1. The simulator should combine hardware and software. 2. The simulator should permit the simulations of power system in real-time for the purposes of closed loop protective relay testing, control system testing, research, development and training. 3. The simulator should have features of modular design and expandability. 4. In order to improve the efficiency of the expansion, ideally the Real-Time Power Grid Simulator facility should expand the capability of the existing RTDS facility, hence ideally it should be compatible with the existing RTDS facility so that they can be interfaced very easily and used conveniently. Hardware: 5. The simulator hardware should include processing cards, communication cards, etc. 6. The simulator should have real-time simulation capability of networks with around 100 single circuit nodes or more. 7. The FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) based units should be provided to have the capability of detailed modelling of two terminal MMC (Modular Multilevel Converter) VSC (Voltage Sourced Converter) Converters with some 40 levels or higher as well as HVDC Grid. 8. High precision analogue output with total channels of 24 or more (with optically isolated a/d converters). 9. High precision analogue input with total channels of 12 or more (with optically isolated a/d converters). 10. High speed digital input with total 64 or more optically isolated digital channels. 11. High speed digital output with total 64 or more optically isolated digital channels. 12. Digital interface panels with 16 digital output channels or more (solid state contacts). 13. A hardware link between a 10/100base T Ethernet or higher and the Simulator to support communications with up to five IEC61850 compliant IEDs. 14. A hardware card providing IEC 61850-9-2 sampled messaging for power system voltages and currents. 15. A hardware card to act as a DNP slave using DNP 3.0 protocol. 16. The simulator should provide interface cards with and testing of controller and protective relays. Software: 17.
