Power system simulator for engineering (PSS_E) has gained great success in power energy industry for its powerful simulation and analysis functions. Along with market deregulation, power system planning and stability analysis warrants more effective and fast techniques due to the ever expanding large-scale interconnection of power networks. Running large-scale system multiple case studies on PSS_E will cost intensive time and efforts. In this paper, we accelerate PSS_E dynamic simulations with EnFuzion based distributed computing technique. This approach is proved to be effective by testing with 39-bus New England power system Â¿n-1Â¿ and Â¿n-1-1Â¿ contingency analysis. The results show that the simulation process can be speeded dramatically and the total elapsed time can be reduced proportionally with the increase of computer nodes.
