This paper, for the first time, is to provide critical overview on Smart Gird Simulator. Further to the report generated by National Power Grid Simulator workshop, which is organized by US Department of Homeland Security in 2008, there is no such powerful simulator so far. Cases need to be considered carefully in order to simulate with communication tools. Some organizations have managed to a small degree of achievement to integrate communication with power system in simulation. As the sampling frequency is too small, communication system information loss cannot be avoided. No software has been available for smart grid researchers. A natural way is to integrate the two simulators or packages together with an interface between them. Due to various electrical applicants and new devices in power system and communication systems, various models and data requirement need to be considered.
