Researchers from University of Alberta Report Details of New Studies and Findings in the Area of Industrial Informatics (Hardware Emulation Building Blocks for Real-Time Simulation of Large-Scale Power Grids)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- New research on Industrial Informatics is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Edmonton, Canada, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "This paper proposes digital hardware building block concept for emulating power system networks on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) in real time. Basic hardware emulation building blocks (HEBBs) for machines, transmission lines, nonlinear elements, and loads are presented to demonstrate how real-time simulation can be achieved for realistic power systems."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Alberta, "All of the hardware modules were developed using the VHDL language for portability and extensibility. Employing multiple FPGAs, a large-scale power system consisting of 1260 three-phase buses is modeled in detail in real time to show both electromagnetic transients and electromechanical dynamics in the system."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The advantage of HEBB-based modeling is that the design and development of new technologies can be accelerated by utilizing massive real-time digital simulators capable of modeling multiscale and multidomain dynamics."
