PowerWorld Simulator’s geographic data view tool is very well-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 […]

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 […]

We recently developed a spreadsheet template for analyzing transformer thermal response due to geomagnetically induced current (GIC), as described in the NERC Transformer Thermal Impact Assessment White Paper. Details for this and for modeling of the NERC Benchmark GMD Event are provided in these knowledge-base articles. We will extend an offer to our North American […]
