Development of a Co-Simulation Platform for Electrical Systems

The proposed research aims to develop better computer simulation tools for the study of large electrical power systems. The premise of the research is based upon the concept of co-simulation, wherein two specialized computer simulation tools, each with unique features and strengths, are used in conjunction to solve a large electrical system. In the particular case of the proposed research work, this will be achieved using an interface between an electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulator and a dynamic-phasor (DP) simulator. The interfaced DP-EMT simulator will be able to simulate systems much larger than what is possible with an EMT solver and with reduced computational intensity, which will result in saving in computing time and resources.
