- Software simulation system for electric power grid distribution
- Built on OpenDSS
The University of Central Florida invention is a Multi-Agent Open Distribution System Simulator (MA‐OpenDSS). The invention is built on OpenDSS and incorporates asynchronous local communication, dynamic behaviors of distributed resources, and a host of distributed optimization and control algorithms. This software has applications in electric power systems and utility industries.
- Effective, open‐source tool to conduct simulations of distributed energy resources (DERs) and their controls, distribution and/or transmission networks
- Enables the development of advanced distribution management system functions
- Power system researchers
- Utility and industry engineers
