RTDS stands for real-time digital simulator. In this case, RTDS makes specialized computer hardware and software that allows electrical power system operators to simulate system performance and interactions before, during, and after an electrical system event.
Developed by the Manitoba HVDC Research Centre in the early 1990s, the technology was licensed by the five engineer-partners who have created a highly specialized success story that now boasts 400 installations across 40 countries, with a staff of roughly 70.
Its iconic headquarter building sits on stilts over a retention pond at the Smartpark on the University of Manitoba’s Fort Garry campus.
This year will mark RTDS' TEAM TIMESTEP's 5th year in the Challenge for Life 2.0 event. Over the course of our past 4 years, Team Timestep has raised over $87,000.00 for Cancer research.
