Abstract

This project developed an alterable interactive simulation of the present WPI campus power grid. The simulation accurately represents the voltage, switch gear, breaker ratings, transformer locations, connectivity, and impedance of the actual campus electrical network. This electrical information is overlaid on a three-dimensional Geographical Information System (GIS) model of the campus showing building locations. Simulation results were verified against actual system data. This model will facilitate system studies of campus grid upgrades.
