A user-friendly simulation program for teaching power system operations Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper describes a user-friendly power simulation program for teaching power system operations and control. The motivation for the development of the program is to provide students with a simple and useable tool for gaining an intuitive feel for power system operations. This Microsoft Windows based program simulates power system operation over a specified time period (of typically several hours to a day). Students dynamically interact with the simulated system through various windows, including a one-line display. The use of data files and option windows allows the program to simulate a wide variety of different power systems and operating problems. Efficient programming results in a modest program size ' of just 450k, allowing for easy distribution to students. 1995 IEEE.
