From the series: Performing Power System Studies
Graham Dudgeon, MathWorks
Power system studies require a computational ecosystem that provides more capability than a simulation model alone offers. You can use the MATLAB® product family to replay measured data, such as synchrophasor data, through your simulation models in order to tune them and get outcomes closer to reality. Run Monte-Carlo simulations to gain a statistical significance on systems that have a broad operational envelope such as those that include variable energy. Automatically generate reports to document the outcome of your studies. By considering the broader workflow, you can introduce efficiency gains and additional insight into your power system studies, which builds your confidence for the decisions you make based on the outcome of the study.
