The paper details the design, architectural features and application of a fully digital electromagnetic transients simulator capable of real-time operation. The custom hardware and software developed to implement the Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) is described with special emphasis given to the high level graphical user interface written especially for use with the RTDS.
