Real time simulation of power systems.

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisPhD


This dissertation is concerned with the development of a faster than real time transient model of a power system. The development of a distributed processing system is described together with the associated peripheral devices and high speed communications link. The development of the system software and associated programming tools is described in order to show the logical progression from hardware design through to software development to produce the firmware that has the capability of enabling the development of a real time model. Various methods of simulating the transient model of dynamic systems are discussed with the emphasis on speed of solution of such systems. A high speed method of simulating dynamic systems is presented which is implemented under a multi-microprocessor environment. Coordinated controls using accel1eration are then applied to these models to produce verification of the validity of the dynamic model produced.
