This paper details the work conducted by the Brunel Institute of Power Systems, UK, into an object orientated framework for power systems modelling, analysis and control. Based around a central OODBMS (object orientated database management system), the architecture provides a framework for the construction of analysis and control applications and the sharing of calculated or real-time data between the applications. Although the paper details the architecture only in so far as its applicability to two applications, the framework is designed such that further applications, either client output (such as control applications) or input(such as SCADA systems) may easily be added to the basic structure. To illustrate the architecture, a load flow simulation application is presented, along with the strategy for incorporating other applications. The mechanism by which these `applications' interact with the OODBMS and core structure of the architecture is illustrated
