    Abstract

    The integration of smart grid technologies in interconnected power system networks presents multiple challenges for the power industry and scientific community. To address these challenges, researchers are creating new methods for validating control, interoperability, and reliability of Internet of Things stems, Distributed Energy Resources, andmodern power equipment for applications covering power system stability, operation and control, and cybersecurity. Novel methods for laboratory testing of electrical power systems incorporate novel simulation techniques spanning real-time simulation, Power Hardware-in-the-Loop, Controller Hardware-in-the-Loop, Power System-in-the-Loop, and co-simulation technologies. These methods directly support the acceleration of electrical systems and power electronic component research by validating technological0 solutions in high-fidelity environments. In this paper, members of the Survey of Smart Grid International Research Facility Network task on Advanced Laboratory Testing Methods present a review of methods, test procedures, studies, and experiences employing advanced laboratory techniques for validation of range of research and development prototypes and novel power system solutions.
