Real-Time Distributed Simulation of DC Zonal Electrical Distribution System 2002-01-3189
In this paper, a prototype DC Zonal Electrical Distribution System (ZEDS) developed under the Naval Combat Survivability effort is considered. A model of one zone is described in detail on a component level, and is viewed as a collection of interconnected dynamical subsystems each described by a set of state equations. An innovative approach for distributing the subsystems among multiple computers is shown to result in a significant improvement in simulation speed. Moreover, when Average Value Models (AVMs) replace the detailed converter models, a faster than real-time simulation can be achieved.
