This booklet introduces practical guidelines and specific techniques for developing and analyzing complex power systems with the aid of computer simulation. The general concept of computer simulation (referred to simply as simulation in this booklet) is to use a computer to predict the behavior of a system that is to be developed. To achieve this goal, a system model of the real system is created. This system model is then used to predict actual system performance and to help make effective design decisions.
