Abstract

For smart grid assessment one needs to simulate varieties of components in different software environments. However, the existing simulation tools are domain oriented and cannot fulfil this need natively. Therefore, a smart grid simulation environment has to be established with accordingly accurate models for intra and inter-domain elements as well as interfaces and framework for coordination of those models in a holistic scenario. This paper presents part of the development of this smart grid simulation environment by implementing co-simulation interface for PSCAD using the mosaik framework based on functional mock-up interface (FMI). This co-simulation interface is tested using a modified dynamic model of IEEE 9 bus test system simulated in PSCAD while the wind turbine controller is simulated in MATLAB/Simulink. The results show a significant advantage over alternative methods in terms of a reduction in simulation runtime and compatibility with different simulation environments.
