Modelling and Simulation

Introduccion

Electrical devices modelling and simulation is a service that provide software models of actual power-electronics-based devices and power plant controls by mimicking its behaviour on standard electrical system simulation software, such as PSS/E®, DIgSilent and Matlab/Simulink. Thus, Ingelectus provides a complete overview of the devices (PV, ESS, STATCOM, among others) and power plant controllers (PPC).

Service description

Models match the behaviour of electrical devices or power plant controllers so that you can use these models on standard electrical power systems software such as PSS/E® or DIgSilent. Simulations in these software platforms with the custom models are the best approach to the actual behaviour during electromechanical events. With these simulations you can analyze and prove the compliance of Grid Code Requirements.
