INL has the largest real-time digital simulation capability in the national laboratory system

Energy systems require the integration of numerous complex components. Testing and optimizing new systems requires the ability to model interactions and simulate responses. INL’s modeling capabilities can incorporate real-world data, hardware and software into real-time simulations. We have diverse expertise and the ability to cosimulate electrical, thermal and mechanical systems. Plus, we can integrate with INL’s microgrid test beds and with simulation resources at other national laboratories.
