The electric power system is moving towards the smart grid development for improved reliable, secure and economic operation. Many researchers are now concentrating their research that is aimed at upgrading the power system by using state-of-the-art computer based online monitoring and control tools along with advanced communication facilities. Implementation of such a system requires enhanced testing and validation of smart grid technologies as well as development of new approaches to fully utilize the capabilities of these technologies. This paper is a modest attempt to present the summary of the effort to model a smart power grid in real time by developing a “smart grid test bed”. Additionally, some of the applications of the developed test bed have been briefly described, with special emphasis on testing of synchrophasor devices like PMUs and PDCs.
