PowerWorld is a comprehensive power system simulation package that runs in the Microsoft Windows environment. The package is user friendly, interactive, and menu driven. It effectively uses visualization techniques to present the basics of power system operations and control simply, yet also with a level of detail to accurately model large-scale systems realistically and with the appropriate level of fidelity. The package is shown to be a very effective tool for communicating the many technical and economic impacts of third-party access.
