Abstract

This paper describes a controller hardware-in-the-loop testbed that was developed to provide an ultra-high fidelity real-time environment for testing coordination and control architectures for distributed energy resources. Although the testbed is equipped to validate the effectiveness of architectures based on centralized, decentralized, and/or distributed decision-making algorithms, the focus of this paper is to describe a setup of the controller hardware-in-the-loop testbed that accommodates and facilitates the testing and validation of distributed coordination and control architectures. We provide results from case studies that utilize this setup.
