Founded in 1997, OPAL-RT TECHNOLOGIES is the leading developer of open Real-Time Digital Simulators and Hardware-In-the-Loop testing equipment for electrical, electro-mechanical and power electronic systems. OPAL-RT Simulators are used by engineers and researchers at leading manufacturers, utilities, universities and research centres around the world. OPAL-RT's unique technological approach integrates parallel, distributed computing with commercial-off-the-shelf technologies. The company's core software, RT-LAB, enables users to rapidly develop models suitable for Real-Time Simulation, while minimizing initial investment and their cost of ownership. OPAL-RT also develops mathematical solvers and models specialized for accurate simulation of power electronic systems and electrical grids. RT-LAB and OPAL-RT solvers and models are integrated with advanced field programmable gate array (FPGA) I/O and processing boards to form complete solutions for RCP and HIL testing.
