A Simulator Acquisition Strategy for Limited Training Budgets

©2012, nHance Technologies, Inc.

This paper briefly describes the advantages of simulation training as well as the return on investment for an Operator Training Simulator (OTS) acquisition. Because full scope replica simulators can be expensive, the paper outlines a way the benefits of simulation can be acquired cost effectively using low-cost generics, while planning site specific upgrades for future budgets.

Improve Reliability and Training of Power Plant Electrical Distribution System Operation by Dynamic Load-Flow Simulation

Sadashiva S. Godbole et. al.

This white paper outlines ways the Modular Modeling System can be used to model a complex power plant electrical distribution system. Various different ways of interacting with the dynamic model are covered.
