The Highly Efficient And Reliable smart Transformer (HEART)


The chair is currently building a laboratory with medium and low voltage connection to the distribution grid. This laboratory will be equipped with a Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) and a power amplifier in order to test power electronics prototypes under realistic conditions. The RTDS system and the power amplifier setup will enable the realization of extensive converter tests without affecting the real grid.

The setup consists of:


  •  RTDS system (2 racks for a maximum of 360 single-phase nodes simulated)
  • Medium Voltage connection of 10 kV and a connection power in the range of 200 kVA.
  • Air conditioned room for power electronics converter testing
  • AC power source (45 kW)
  • Electronic loads
