Power system apparatus are increasingly operated closer to their operational limits to achieve a higher degree of utilization. Power systems, too, are subjected to more stringent operational constraints and control strategies due to incentives such as environmental awareness to maximize technical and economical utilization. As a result, power system transients drive the power system close to its operational limits and may cause violation of operational limits and even instability.

A software tool is developed to serve as a test platform for assessment.

The software is developed in the MATLAB programming language. The p-code of the developed software can be accessed from this website.
