ADAPT are proud to announce that Tas Networks are the latest organisation to join the large, and growing list of Australian and NZ RTDS users. The RTDS was recently commissioned at their Hobart location and on-site training conducted. The RTDS Simulator is a real time power system simulation tool, used worldwide for the closed-loop testing of protection and control equipment, HVDC and FACTS scheme testing, phasor measurement unit (PMU) simulation, power electronics simulation, distributed generation studies, and more.

The TasNetworks RTDS employs the new NovaCor processor and several pending projects there will immediately benefit from the application of this technology. The Australian user group has grown so substantially there are plans for an inaugural Aus/NZ user group meeting to be held next year.
