Abstract

The Global Real-Time Superlaboratory (Global RT Superlab) represents a vendor-neutral distributed platform based on the virtual interconnection of digital real-time simulators (DRTSs) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) setups hosted at eight geographically distributed laboratories in the United States and Europe (Figure 1). This article describes the efforts toward the realization of this largescale virtual infrastructure and explains a demonstration of the multilab setup for simulation and testing of next-generation global power grids.
