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) […]

Animated Transient Stability Contingencies in v19

October 26, 2015

Continuing to expand the visualization tools at your disposal, in Simulator Version 19 we’ve simplified the process of creating fully animated sequences showing the effects of a contingency by exporting frames at a specified interval during simulation.  Check out some sample animations here!

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 […]
