As partners, OPAL-RT and Triphase combined their strengths to provide Power Hardware-In-the-Loop (PHIL) solutions to customers. PHIL simulation is a scenario where a simulation environment exchanges power with real hardware, in contrast to the usual case in HIL simulation, which involves only signal exchange.

This document describes the relevant layers of the Triphase  Real-Time Inter-PC Interface. They include the physical network link based on a 250 Mbit/s optical ring network, the packet-based data exchange over the optical ring network and the application interfaces to many of the Triphase power apps.
