PTIDES, a programming model for distributed real-time systems, was proposed previously. The model captures both the functionality of the system and the desired timing of interactions with the environment. The PTIDES simulator supports simulation of both of these aspects. In this work, we focus on the PTIDES development environment in the context of applications drawn from the control of electric power systems. The evaluation is based on experiments on a system of distributed computing platforms emulating typical power system control and monitoring devices and an emulation of portions of the electric power grid based on conventional micro-controller instrumentation.
