Abstract: An article discusses achievements in the field of real time hybrid simulation of electrical power systems and their application for smart grid tasks solution. The developed real time hybrid simulation concept and tools are introduced as an alternative to digital simulation systems that are currently widely spread. To substantiate this, the article proposes some factors determining the preference of hybrid simulation approach to numerical methods used in digital simulators. A number of accomplished projects and problems solved in the context of these projects are given to confirm the relevancy, efficiency and viability of the introduced approach of real time hybrid simulation.

Keywords: Real time power system simulation, large power systems, intelligent control
