System and Plant Tests

Precise knowledge of grid response and plant characteristics are often required for solving stability problems, for operating with proper stability margins and for the optimal tuning of grid and plant control systems. DIgSILENT is performing system and power plant tests, test evaluation and related simulation model development.
