This paper will describe the findings and developments associated with an ongoing R&D project at the Korean Electric Power Corporation’s research institute, KEPRI, in which a power system simulation center is being designed and installed. The so-called KEPCO Enhanced Power System Simulator (KEPS) will include both off line (i.e. non-real time) and on line (real time) simulation capabilities and will be used by KEPRI to
study various aspects of the growing power network in Korea. A Real Time Digital simulator based on the well known RTDSTM hardware and software architecture will form the core of the KEPS system. A number of developments and enhancements have been made to the fundamental simulation technology in order to meet some of the special requirements defined in the KEPS project. The authors will also provide a brief summary of various simulation and analysis tools including those used for steady state simulation, dynamic simulation, transient simulation, electro-magnetic transients simulation and real time simulation. A comparison of simulation results from the KEPS real time digital simulator with other well accepted programs will be given in order to illustrate the accuracy and the application scope of KEPS.
