A Modelica Power System Library for Phasor Time-Domain Simulation
2013 (English)In: 2013 4th IEEE/PES Innovative Smart Grid Technologies Europe (ISGT EUROPE), IEEE conference proceedings, 2013, 1-5 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Power system phasor time-domain simulation is often carried out through domain specific tools such as Eurostag, PSS/E, and others. While these tools are efficient, their individual sub-component models and solvers cannot be accessed by the users for modification. One of the main goals of the FP7 iTesla project  is to perform model validation, for which, a modelling and simulation environment that provides model transparency and extensibility is necessary.1 To this end, a power system library has been built using the Modelica language. This article describes the Power Systems library, and the software-to-software validation carried out for the implemented component as well as the validation of small-scale power system models constructed using different library components. Simulations from the Modelica models are compared with their Eurostag equivalents. Finally, due to its standardization, the Modelica language is supported by different modelling and simulation tools. This article illustrates how Modelica models can be shared across different simulation platforms without loss of information and maintaining consistency in simulation results.
