This paper examines how analog computation (emulation) may be utilized to perform dynamic power system analysis and the advantages of this method over digital - mainly solution accuracy and computation speed. Unlike the authors' previous works in this area which focus on the development of custom analog hardware prototypes and printed circuit (PC) boards, here the authors examine the utilization of field-programmable analog arrays (FPAA) for power system emulation. The programmable nature of the FPAA is key-significantly reducing the effort and time required to develop a working prototype and VLSI design.
