The IEEE student branch of TU Delft and ERIGrid are organising a three-day spring school on 4-6 March 2019 in Delft (NL). The objective is to give the participants a basic introduction to real time simulation environment and its applications in sustainable energy system simulations.

Pre-requisites: A background in power system analysis (steady-state and dynamic performance) obtained in an undergraduate/graduate electrical engineering curriculum is recommended, but not strictly necessary.

Learning Goals

  • Introduction to the hardware and software aspects of Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS).
  • Modelling, Design and Simulation of simple power system networks in RTDS.
  • Application of RTDS in more complex and sustainable energy systems.

The event will take place at TU Delft’s¬†Electrical Sustainable Energy Laboratory.
