Power Grid – Interactive Simulation

March 28, 2010 Leave a comment

Power engineering experts and educators from the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE) and the Information Trust Institute (ITI) have developed these interactive lessons for the NSF, DOE, and DHS funded Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power grid (TCIP) project to help teachers and students learn about the system that delivers electricity and the challenges for the future.

This interactive model can help non-techies in understanding the power grid and how Supply Vs Demand works.

You can interact by increasing or decreasing supply from a certain generator or increase the consumption of a residential town and see how this affects the entire system.
