Dynamic security region (DSR) gives power system engineers systematic and global information about the feasible operation region. This paper is a result of an investigation into the use of DSR concept and its effective application in bulk power systems. It particularly concerns with developing a software-based tool for the transient stability monitoring in the on-line operation environment. A practical DSR solving method based on massively parallel computer clusters is described, and a new software package, named power system dynamic security region (PSDSR) is developed. Following a brief discussion about the main requirements, the paper gives a summary of the development of PSDSR from both the software architecture and the function implementation. A most distinctive character, the practical application in monitoring the cut-set power flows, with result visualization is emphasized.
