Retriever Substation Diagram

A new flexible multi-user operations training platform.

OPS-X Trainer

Utilizes the new time-step simulation feature of Simulator on a simplified PowerWorld platform.


A tool designed to compute characteristic line parameters given the type of conductor and the tower configuration of a three-phase overhead transmission line.


A freeware program designed to make it easy to exchange power flow cases. You can view a solved power flow case graphically using animated one-lines.

GIC Visualizations with Geographic Data View

July 14, 2015

PowerWorld Simulator’s geographic data view tool is uniquely suited for creating wide-area visualization of geomagnetic induced current (GIC) flow. In this example, substations are denoted by circles, sized proportionally to the GIC in the neutral. The color denotes whether GIC is flowing into or out of the ground at the substation. This simulation incorporates the NERC Benchmark GMD Event […]

New PowerWorld Simulator-Created Images

February 18, 2015

PowerWorld founder Professor Tom Overbye created these rich images in PowerWorld Simulator using a one-line diagram and unified North American power flow models. They demonstrate how Simulator can be used to provide “overview” visualizations, that might be of interest to a wide audience that might include management, media, government, and the general public. The images […]
