About this Guide
This guide explains the basic concepts and requirements of ARTEMiS to execute real-time simulations of electric circuits and systems.
ARTEMiS introduces innovative fixed-step solvers and efficient computational techniques that dramatically improve the computational performance of Simscape Power Systems, and allow the real-time simulation of Simscape Power Systems models.
For users of The MathWorks' Simscape Power Systems Toolbox (formerly known as the Power System Blockset or SimPowerSystems Toolbox) who need to accelerate their power system models or simulate them in real time, ARTEMiS provides enhanced algorithms that ensure reliable, accurate, and fast fixed step-length computations, essential for high fidelity, high-performance simulations.
Unlike Simscape Power Systems on its own, ARTEMiS was designed from the ground up to support real-time implementations of power systems simulations, improving computation speed while preserving accuracy. It is the best way of getting high precision, hard-real-time performance out of Simscape Power Systems models.
