Inverter Interoperability Testing with AIT SGC HIL Approach

The key element of the emerging Smart Grid is the smart converter. The key feature of the smart converter, on the other hand, is its ability to communicate and co-operate with other smart converters and SCADA systems. That is why SunSpec protocols for universal interoperability are becoming more and more important.

In this webinar, you will see the true power and versatility of AIT’s SunSpec-compliant Smart Grid Converter (SGC) control platform. More precisely, you will see how AIT SGC’s full support for SunSpec protocols provides genuine plug-and-play interoperability of diverse DERs, system components, software applications and even financial systems for energy trading.

Watch the webinar and learn first-hand how experts doing cutting-edge power electronics projects are constantly finding new applications for the Controller Hardware in the Loop (C-HIL) paradigm. Moreover, see how C-HIL can help you too overcome the challenges of the Smart Grid.
