This paper describes the use of detailed models of power system components for undergraduate and graduate education. The models were developed in a commercial graphically oriented package (ACSL/Graphic Modeller). At the undergraduate level, the models are provided to the student to use as a tool to reinforce lecture and laboratory concepts. At the graduate level, the models can be used to introduce the student to more advanced topics such as reference frame theory and provide a beginning point for the student to develop more complex models. Included in the paper is a short tutorial on the use of ACSL/Graphic Modeller and a description of several models including a synchronous machine, induction motor, pulse-width-modulated inverter and a six-pulse bridge rectifier. Sample studies using each model are shown with suggestions for additional uses by students. Since the models are detailed, transient as well as steady-state phenomena can be demonstrated with the models. For example, the free acceleration of an induction motor and a three-phase fault on the synchronous generator are among the applications shown in the paper. The models are provided on the CDROM and can be viewed and executed with a free viewer version of ACSL
