Genie lab is a state-of-the-art Control Room for AI-Renewable Microgrid and hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulations. GENIE Lab houses OPAL-RT, and LabVolt simulators along with the InTouch Wonderware system, thereby providing the capability to test, simulate, and validate inverters, batteries, and other grid-based equipment
- The GENIE lab is equipped with Opal-RT-based real-time simulation equipment capable of simulating AIR Microgrid and other smart grid components, software, and controllers.
- GENIE lab equipment gives the ability to design, simulate, and validate, software and hardware components prior to field operation.
- Communication infrastructure allows for seamless connectivity with the PANDORAS lab for display and control of simulated grid systems further expanding command and control capabilities.
- The GENIE lab uses similar software as those used by FPL in their microgrid operation including Intouch, Wonderware, Historian, Schnieder Control Expert, and more.
