In this paper we present the current state of the project InFIS - Integrated Research Infrastructure. Specifically we show how a PV Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) can be connected to a grid emulator and a central simulation environment. The grid emulator is a modular multilevel converter consisting of six arms containing four Insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) submodules each. The grid simulation operates on commercial PHiL hardware simulating the CIGRE distribution grid benchmark network. Communication is established in real-time using the Villas Framework. Results presented show how each component is built and connected to the central simulation system as well as some initial results on system scaling and dimensioning.
