OFFIS in collaboration with OPAL-RT and FMTP POWER AB held a one-day seminar “Enhance Power System Protection, Control & Security with Real-Time Simulation” on 11 May 2017, in Oldenburg (DE). This seminar was free to join for any professional working in the fields of the power system control, power electronics, and information and communication technology applied to energy systems.




Smart Energy Simulation and Automation Laboratory (SESA-Lab) at OFFIS

This seminar provided examples of how real-time simulation can help you develop and test better protection and control systems. It also presented a perfect occasion to meet other researchers and develop future collaborations.
