Laboratory Facilities:

The Power Systems Simulation Laboratory at the University of Texas at Arlington is a scaled-down three-phase physical model which correlates well with the important components of a real power system. Its configuration is sufficient to simulate significant system behavior, such as transient and dynamic stability phenomena and all forms of steady-state operation phenomena. This laboratory is equipped with a commercial grade SCADA system, three motor-generator, equivalent to 900 miles of 345-kV transmission lines, a full complement of solid state protective relays, and a high speed data recorder. This laboratory provides unique opportunity for research, undergraduate/graduate education, and continuing education.
