Title: Comparative Implementation of High Performance Computing for Power System Dynamic Simulations

Abstract

Dynamic simulation for transient stability assessment is one of the most important, but intensive, computations for power system planning and operation. Present commercial software is mainly designed for sequential computation to run a single simulation, which is very time consuming with a single processer. The application of High Performance Computing (HPC) to dynamic simulations is very promising in accelerating the computing process by parallelizing its kernel algorithms while maintaining the same level of computation accuracy. This paper describes the comparative implementation of four parallel dynamic simulation schemes in two state-of-the-art HPC environments: Message Passing Interface (MPI) and Open Multi-Processing (OpenMP). These implementations serve to match the application with dedicated multi-processor computing hardware and maximize the utilization and benefits of HPC during the development process.
