Modeling and simulation of different conditions are needed for better design of future Shipboard Power Systems (SPS). Research work at Mississippi State University (MSU) related to SPS protection aims to develop an adaptive protective controller, which can adapt to different protection schemes depending upon requirements. The first step for this research work is to develop relay models. Developed relay model will be validated against a commercial relay using hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation. HIL provides an opportunity for understanding the behavior and validating model of physical device. This paper discusses HIL simulation for Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) distance relay using the Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS).
