Black box control integration for the RTDS Simulator

The GTSOC is a new auxiliary hardware component for the RTDS® Simulator.

The GTSOC uses FPGA and multi-processor system-on-a-chip technology to facilitate the integration of black box control models into the real-time power system simulation environment while protecting the vendor’s intellectual property. Using its ARM processors, the GTSOC runs library files compiled from the original source code in real time.

This allows OEM controls to be included in the real-time simulation without compromising IP. The GTSOC enables interoperability testing and accurate system modelling like never before.
