Labelled Power System Simulator
Power Systems Simulator at the University of Moratuwa
  • Power system simulator  - Developed by undergraduates under the guidance of Prof Rohan Lucas, Eng Jayasiri Karunanayake and Dr Narendra de Silva, with `eighteen 11 kV vacuum circuit breaker panels giving the breaking facility. Generator supply is given from a motor-generator set and a diesel generator. Modern digital protection has been provided for the transmission lines in the model, built from wound inductance and capacitance components. The transmisision lines are operated at 400V for reasons of student safety. Practical teaching is to be carried out in an integrated manner on this simulator.
  • Power system transient analysis & modelling 
  • Transformer modelling
  • Energy efficient lighting
  • Solar energy dispatch
  • High voltage engineering and condition monitoring
