In this paper electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation of large scale power systems using graphics processing unit (GPU) based computing is demonstrated. As the size of power system networks increases, the simulation time using conventional central processing units (CPUs) based simulation increases drastically. This paper proposes a hybrid CPU-GPU environment for fast large scale power systems […]

This major qualifying project investigates the algorithm and the performance of using the CUDA-based Graphics Processing Unit for power flow analysis. The accomplished work includes the design, implementation and testing of the power flow solver. Comprehensive analysis shows that the execution time of the parallel algorithm outperforms that of the sequential algorithm by several factors.

Load forecasting plays a vitally important role in the operation and planning of the power system in a deregulated electricity market. A large variety of methods have been proposed for load forecasting. In this paper, we introduce the Graphics Processing Units (GPU) based computing to accelerate the short term load forecasting with multi-layer perceptron (MLP). […]

This paper presents a single-instruction-multiple-data (SIMD) based implementation of the transient stability simulation on the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Two programming models to implement the standard method of the transient stability simulation are proposed and implemented on a single GPU. In the first model the CPU is responsible for part of the simulation, while the […]
