This workshop will take place at the Western Area Power Administration’s Electric Power Training Center, which features a Miniature Power System (MPS). The MPS is a self-contained, fully operational power system simulator with over 40 full-size panels of operator controls. It includes three generators, a wind farm, four substations, many hundreds of miles of transmission lines, a dispatch center, and a variety of loads spread throughout the system. Attendees of this small group workshop will work together to get the grid back online by finding the location of an introduced fault.
