Power System Simulation

What Is Power System Simulation?

Power system simulation involves modeling power generation equipment, planning the integration of power plants onto the electric grid, and performing generator control system parameter estimation.

Critical power system simulation and optimization tasks include:

  • Simulating performance against grid code and ensuring production goals are met
  • Automating control system parameter estimation to meet regulatory requirements
  • Performing EMT simulation and harmonic analysis to identify and mitigate power quality issues

For details on a platform for performing these tasks, see MATLAB® and Simulink®.
