This paper describes the Power hardware-in-the-loop (PHIL) architecture and capacities of the CoSES laboratory at TU Munich. The lab brings together renewable resources, flexible grid topologies, fully controllable prosumer emulators, a real-time control environment, and an API access for external connection to the lab. The electrical and control design of the lab allows for sophisticated PHIL experiments with an user-friendly implementation. Two experiments are included, to validate the PHIL performance and demonstrate the use of PHIL infrastructure to investigate an OPF algorithm.
