The real-time simulation (RTS) provides an improved model that considers the time limitations and makes possible the interconnection with real devices. This chapter explores the application of real-time simulation to electromagnetic transients (EMT) phenomena of electrical power systems. It focuses on the modeling of power system components, basic architecture, operation and control of a RTS for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL), and fully digital software in the loop (SIL) tests. The design of the experimental test rig has to consider which elements are going to be used to represent the real system. The selection of these elements is usually dependent on the final application of the set-up. There are many applications in DC grids where HIL schemes can be used. The chapter discusses four examples that include subsynchronous resonance (SSR) studies, DC grid protection, integration of offshore wind power and converter architecture and design.
