PowerWorld Trainer is a new flexible multi-user operations training platform.

A central server manages the power system model and training scenarios. One or more clients may simultaneously interact with the simulation environment. Trainer is simple to customize for company-specific power system models and training requirements. It supports:

  • full breaker topology – use the actual EMS model, not a simplified planning equivalent;
  • multiple one-line diagrams and graphical system representations;
  • customizable monitors and alarms;
  • conditional remedial action schemes (RAS);
  • multiple simultaneous participants: generation dispatchers, transmission operators, etc.; and
  • time-step simulation for changing system conditions and creating system events to which operators must respond
