The Ada language software developed to control the NASA Lewis Research Center's Power Management and Distribution testbed is described. The testbed is a reduced-scale prototype of the electric power system to be used on Space Station Freedom. It is designed to develop and test hardware and software for a 20 kHz power distribution system. The distributed, multiprocessor, testbed control system has an easy-to-use operator interface with an understandable English-text format. A simple interface for algorithm writers that used the same commands as the operator interface is provided, encouraging interactive exploration of the system
