‘Digital Twins’: How Real-Time Simulation is Helping Create the Power Generation, Power System Control and Management and CyberSecurity Solutions of the Future

Share

‘Digital twins’ are helping solve problems and deliver outcomes across every industry where smart digital controls are being deployed. From autonomous vehicles to smart power grids, from undergrad lab desktops, to the largest power utility research labs in the world, you’ll find OPAL-RT.

This presentation will focus on how power utilities and suppliers of critical grid components rely on OPAL-RT to validate concepts, test software and electronics in virtual environments and deliver the safe ‘cyber-secure’ power networks for the coming decades. Jean will be using an OPAL-RT real-time simulation system to demonstrate some key concepts.

Jean Belanger
Jean Belanger of OPAL-RT

Jean started his career as a grid planning engineer with Hydro-Quebec, where he helped establish their real-time simulation lab, IREQ, which is now a globally recognized leader in the application of real-time modeling to hybrid power network applications. Jean is himself now an internationally recognized thought leader in the area of ‘real-time digital twin’ simulation methodologies, which are increasingly being used in areas as diverse as smart grid and microgrid research, power electronics rapid control system prototyping and design validation, more-electric/all-electric hybrid transport research, autonomous vehicle developments and cyber-physical security system design and evaluation.

 

Jean sits on numerous international IEEE and CIGRE workgroups, drawing on his experience as a network planning engineer and simulation systems developer, to help formulate strategies that are helping build the smart power networks and smart grid-connected devices of the future.
