Synthetic Power Flow Cases

June 21, 2016

The Illinois Center for a Smarter Electric Grid (ICSEG), part of the Information Trust Institute (ITI) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is developing synthetic power system models based entirely on publicly available information. These can be used for research and testing without violating confidentiality agreements or Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (CEII) regulations. Models […]

High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) Analysis

June 6, 2016

PowerWorld is developing tools for incorporating HEMP into power flow and transient stability analysis. Professor Tom Overbye of the University of Illinois and PowerWorld co-founder, recently delivered this presentation to the PSERC Industry Advisory Board. Interested customers are encouraged to contact us about beta-testing these tools. (Contact information is listed below.) Visualization The following contour graphics […]

PowerWorld Authored Article in the Journal of the Chinese Academy of Engineering

January 25, 2016

Link Abstract The installation of vast quantities of additional new sensing and communication equipment, in conjunction with building the computing infrastructure to store and manage data gathered by this equipment, has been the first step in the creation of what is generically referred to as the “smart grid” for the electric transmission system. With this […]

Sample Animation: TS with Sustained Oscillations

December 29, 2015

We have another sample Transient Stability animation created using Simulator 19: it plays out an artificial scenario in real time on a 2000 bus equivalent system that creates sustained oscillations in a couple of generators. (Note that this scenario is meant only to demonstrate Simulator’s toolset, not to model the actual behavior of an existing power system) […]
