Abstract:

This thesis presents the details of the design for the digital computer control of an electric power system. The input-output medium is the innovative, interactive graphics terminal. The combination enables a man-machine interface with interaction at a level not achieveable in earlier control systems. The system easily solves the problem of scale encountered with the large power system by storing representations of the system on disk and recalling them as needed. The displays also present the system variables from remote points to enable better monitoring and control. The collection of displays described in this thesis make possible a powerful and unique research and educational facility. Experimental research on digital control of an electric power system is prohibitive on a real power system. Educationally, it provides the student state-of-the art training in control of electric power systems. The information provided is applicable to the design of any digital control system using interactive graphics. Author
