Large Scale System Simulation (LSSS)

Overview

The purpose of the Large Scale System Simulation (LSSS) testbed is to provide a scalable system with which to demonstrate and evaluate FREEDM capabilities and functionalities on a large scale. Through the use of simulations, the LSSS allows researchers to analyze and predict how a future FREEDM system will operate across a variety of loads, devices, and renewable energy sources. The testbed has been used to compare the FREEDM system against traditional energy distribution systems and to benchmark several system-level functionalities, including control strategies, component interactions, fault dynamics, and pilot protection.
