A new type of simulation training system for power system operation is presented in this paper. It is based on transmission mimic board, double screen PC, mimic control panel, and real-time digital simulator, KEPS. The operating simulation includes the simulations of the control panel interface and the
simulator. The mimic board displays transmission network summary information using a software view of the hardware based mimic board. The symbols, numbers and colors layout exactly match those of the KEPS draft case to provide operators a familiar and effective starting point. This paper describes the development of an innovative training system, utilizing the benefits of 3 dimension visualization s/w and communication-control s/w to create the appropriate operational environment and allow simulation of various power system operations without the restrictions of other training methods. Experiences gained in
developing concepts and meeting considerable s/w challenges are outlined, and the potential of the simulator for future operations training discussed.
