Operator training simulator (OTS) has been widely utilized for the power system simulation and operator training. However, the changes and restructuring in power industry bring in new challenges into the monitoring, evaluation, prevention and more comprehensive and adaptive plans to ensure dynamic security. Recent advances in designing modular interconnected software applications provided an ideal solution for using OTS as a dynamic security simulation and prevention platform. This work describes a platform that runs contingency analysis (CA) on a simulated network of few hours ahead of current time. This might be sufficient for exercising some preventive action, if necessary. In more sever cases, a fast pace OTS might he used for exercising a restoration scheme, before it is implemented.
