Operator Training Simulator

System operators and engineers must have instant access to online information and analysis tools that allow them to predict an outcome before system actions are taken. The ability to simulate the sequence-of-operation using real-time data is of fundamental importance. Predictive simulation can avoid inadvertent plant outages caused by human error, equipment overload, etc. Predictive simulation provides an environment that is effective for operator training and assistance. Compared to traditional training methods, operator training is accelerated using dynamic graphical simulation of the power system. This makes training an ongoing process.
