This paper proposes a Cyber Physical Approach (CPS) to power electronics (PE) education where all aspects of PE technology from circuit topology to the implementation of real time control code on a microprocessor are dealt with as an inseparable whole, and only the system complexity is increased during the course of instruction. This approach is now made practical thanks to the affordable and unrestricted access to high-power PE laboratory infrastructure (PE laboratory in a box) in the form of high-fidelity digital PE emulators with 1s calculation time step and latency.

We describe a framework for model identification and model order reduction (MOR) of highly dynamic microgrids based on a high fidelity hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) platform. A synchronous generator that is connected in different configurations is analyzed to analytically obtain small-signal linearized models which are compared against HIL-obtained data. The framework is applied to a small microgrid consisting of a synchronous generator, inverter-based distributed energy resource (DER), and linear loads, and provides insights into the estimated machine transfer functions. We propose that HIL based framework could be a suitable tool for model identification, MOR, and controller optimization of complex dynamic microgrids. © 2016 IEEE.
