This paper presents the details of a power plant distributed simulator with interactive graphical user interface. To enhance the performance of a large-scale simulation model for a commercial power plant, centralized simulation on a single processor is replaced by several concurrent simulations distributed over a network. These decentralized simulations are defined as the subsystems: boiler, turbine-generator, feedwater, and condensate. To maintain the fidelity of a central integration, the subsystems communicate interaction data among themselves using the TCP/IP protocol via a shared memory. The shared memory is utilized further in developing a graphical user interface to provide interactive simulation control while masking the internal complexities and management of multiple simulation programs over a network
