Abstract

This paper proposes a very cost-effective digital twin real-time hybrid simulation platform for engineering education in renewable energy areas. Compared to many of the existing laboratory setups that are designed for renewable engineering education, the proposed platform provides greater flexibility, better skill training opportunities, and excellent system extendibility. Its power hardware-in-the-loop (PHIL) based hybrid simulation results are desirable for industry applications. Furthermore, the proposed platform can receive real-time information of renewable energy systems through ethernet based communication. The superior performance and flexibility of the proposed platform are verified by experiments.
