KTH SmarTS Lab

The experimental laboratory (SmarTS Lab) currently deployed at KTH is comprised of several components. These include hardware components and software components, which are different PDCs and application host platforms that allow users to develop applications for wide area measurement based on the data acquired from these hardware components.
The WAMPAC application host platform interfaces with the RT simulator through the following hardware components: protection relays with embedded PMU functions from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), line differential protection relays with Optical Ether- net Module (OEM) for station and process bus implementation, current and voltage amplifiers from Megger (not shown), a compact Reconfigurable Input/Output (cRIO) real-time controller from National Instruments, a PC with a communication networks emulator (Opnet) and a GPS substation clock from Arbiter Model 1094B fed by a GPS antenna which provides time stamping to the PMUs and IEDs.

KTH lab

The KTH SmarTS-Lab is utilized in IDE4L project to demonstrate the added value of the PMU applications, developed for interfacing TSOs and DSOs via key dynamic information exchange. The performance of the applications are assessed through hardware-in-the-loop simulation of different scenarios on the IDE4L reference active distribution network model.
