Investigations of the dynamics in large DC-links using HiL
This presentation gives an insight into the optimization quality and the benefits that simulation enables. The complexity of the AC part in ship grids has often decreased, but significantly, on the DC side, it has increased. For example, the dynamics of a DC system are much higher, and simply assuming that the system will work properly is too risky. For this reason, it is necessary to carry out simulations that are able to investigate the system dynamics as realistically as possible. The method of choice is a Hardware in the Loop (HiL) simulation which integrates the real control hardware.
