OpenAMPERe

OpenAMPERe

OpenAMPERe is an extensible research and training tool capable of generating or replaying telemetry data in electric power grid ICS HIL environments with an open-source front-end currently being developed by the Information Trust Institute.

The OpenAMPERe Power Box is a compact (6U), low-voltage, low-power substation emulator that can generate three-phase telemetry, breaker control, and status, along with programmable binary inputs and outputs with different modes of operation.

 

Control Modes

Manual

User-defined, unbalanced

Three-phase voltage and current telemetry along with breaker control and status outputs for four-relay connections.

Externally Controlled

Time-varying, unbalanced

Three-phase voltage and current telemetry along with breaker controls and status.

Simulator Controlled

Power system simulator controlled, time varying, time synchronized, unbalanced

Three-phase voltage and current telemetry along with breaker controls and status.

Distributed Controlled

Self-standing distributed state estimation (DSE)-based, time varying, time synchronized, unbalanced

Three-phase voltage and current telemetry along with breaker controls and status.
