The RTDS Simulator introduced a level of accessibility and flexibility that had never been seen before by the power industry when it came to testing protection and control equipment.

For much of the 20th century, analogue simulators – expensive and relatively inflexibly devices that could reach the size of gymnasiums – were used to study power system behaviour in real time and to perform basic testing on equipment. RTDS Technologies changed the power industry forever by introducing the world’s first fully digital real-time power system simulator.
