Hardware-In-the-Loop Benchmarking Setup for Phasor Based Control Validation
Phasor Based Control is a novel approach to controlling Distributed Energy Resources that aims at relieving various constraints that arise in the distribution grid. It is a two-layer control system with a supervisory control that coordinates distributed controllers to reach voltage phasor targets. The distributed controllers use local synchrophasor measurements
and operate as feedback controllers. This control method is currently under development with several algorithms being under consideration for both the central and ditributed components. In this paper, we present the experimental setup that was prepared to prototype a hardware implementation and validate the control method in Hardware-In-the-Loop.
