HYPERSIM lets users build powerful one-line network diagrams by leveraging a rich components library validated by Hydro-Québec (Canada) and RTE (France).

It is a recognised gold standard in the study of Electro-Mechanical Transients (phasor domain) phenomena as well as Electro-Magnetic Transients in grids of up to 3,000 3-phase busses.

HYPERSIM speeds model development by providing a library of benchmarked device models (ie verified by major power utilities, including Hydro-Quebec and RTE France).

It also allows users to import models created in Simulink or SimscapePowerSystems (SPS) to allow exploration of new devices and their behaviours.

For this reason, it is considered a Gold Standard by power utilities, and researchers investigating HVDC/MMCs (High Voltage Direct Current/Modular Multilevel Converters), FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems), SVCs (State Variable Controls) and Protection Relays (including standing wave studies).

RT-Lab is the 'open' modelling interface used for eMEGASIM, eFPGASIM and ePHASORSIM, which allow the study of Electro-Mechanical Transient phenomena as well as EMT in networks of up to 30,000 3-phase busses, or for the study of Power Electronics (Inverters, Converters, etc), Synchronous Machines, Electric Drives (PMSMs, BLDCs), etc.

It allows users to directly open models created in Simulink or SimscapePowerSystems (SPS) by dragging-and-dropping them into the RT-Lab environment. No matter how large and complex they are, RT-Lab automatically generates interactive real-time simulation applications that will run in the OPAL-RT HIL environment. For this reason, it has rapidly established itself as the preferred platform for research, because it allows users to rapidly mode to real-time modelling, rather than having to focus on creating models in a proprietary format.

For this reason, it is the preferred modelling solution of more than 300 universities around the world for applications such as Renewables and Microgrids.

eFPGASIM Modules >>

eHS Solver is a simple and intuitive interface that allows users to convert models created in SPS, PSIM, PLECS Blockset or Multisim into models for use in eFPGASIM without users needing any FPGA or VHDL programming expertise.

It is the solver designed specifically to study very fast phenomena in the 2ns to 2us time-step range.

eFPGA Electric Machine model library firmware integrates power electronic converters and inverters who can be changed and edited via the OPAL-RT solver called eHS. The model contains decicated I/Os used in most of motors controls like PWMs, resolvers, encoders and hall effect sensors. All I/O can be reconfigured through RT-XSG.
