GRIDSim Application Software is a universal tool for the ambitious engineer for the setup of TC.ACS Grid Simulators.

General Overview


GRIDSim Application Software is a universal tool for the ambitious engineer for the setup of TC.ACS Grid Simulators. The software not only allows for setting of unique or repetitive grid events, but rather programming of entire event sequences or even running of international agreed test patterns are on disposition. GRIDSim software covers all imaginable application needs of the R+D or test engineer. Even automated test runs or predefined grid patterns are within a few clicks of your fingers. Due to a finely matched task sharing between the resident GRIDSim firmware and the PC-based Application Software, all time-critical operations run on-board in a real-time mode.

REGATRON TC.ACS Grid Simulators Series TC.ACS use the newest multi-level inverter technology for high-resolution voltage/current patterns. By this, the Simulator is able to cover the entire fundamental frequency range from DC up to 1000 Hz and up to 5000 Hz modulation bandwidth. A specialised multi-processor core prepares all relevant voltage/current shapes in a real-time mode in order to ensure very stable phase relationship and event timing throughout the structure.

REGATRON GRIDSim at a glance:

  • Defining, editing and storing of even complex and long test sequences
  • Preview window for output voltage waveform visualisation
  • New RLC load mode, definition of complex equivalent circuits in TC.ACS load mode
  • FOURIER tool (harmonics synthesis) up to 5000 Hz
  • Coming soon: Hand drawing curve tool
  • Coming soon: Grid impedance mode

REGATRON GRIDSim in the fields of R+D and High Level Education (Universities)

R+D Engineering as also Educational Applications call for some particular properties of the related equipment. One of the most important demands is a maximum flexibility of both the programming as also the simulator’s output structure. GRIDSim offers maximum flexibility by a really unique block programming mode taking into account even the smallest output parameter; on the other side the output structure is made up by a total of four (!) fully controlled output rails. By this, not only all well-known 1- to 3-phase structures may be simulated. As an additional hint the 4th rail can be defined as fully controlled Neutral N with defined reference in voltage and phase angle against the other three phases. Moreover, the four rails may also be used to create a 2-phase 4-lead system with freely programmable phase/voltage relationship. These features are of great importance in the field of educational studies.
