Solar Simulation

Students will take the working knowledge from the previous lesson and apply some of the skills by participating in solar simulations. The Energy City simulation will give students the opportunity to work with their own “cities” while adding the types of energy sources (nonrenewable/renewable) to create a sustainable city. The solar power simulator gives students […]

Nuclear Plant Simulations

“Simulate a pressurized water, nuclear fission power plant. User controls all major plant operations to generate safe and cost effective electrical power. The GAMTECH simulator will create random events such as fires, equipment failures, earthquakes, and even terrorist attacks.” http://www.nuclearpowersimulator.com/ https://archive.org/details/TheOakflatNuclearPowerPlantSimulator_1020 https://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/nukeenergy/nuke.htm Nuclear Power Plant Simulator Game

Electric Grid Simulations

Design a grid system that incorporates demand response, along with proper reactions to blackouts and outages.  “Simscape Power Systems helps you develop control systems and test system-level performance.” http://www.powerworld.com/solutions/faculty https://code.google.com/archive/p/gridspice/ http://spacedout.fries.net/~david/cs39x/cs39xusman.html http://www.gridlabd.org/ http://www.cs.cornell.edu/Projects/gridcontrol/ POWER GRID SIMULATION Electrical Power Systems Simulation – SimPowerSystems – Simulink
