Five reports are presented which direct attention to the problem areas being experienced by utilities in effective utilization of dispatcher training simulators as part of the overall dispatcher training programs. Each report focuses on a different aspect of dispatcher training and utilization of power system simulation in the training curriculum. The first report addresses the justification of a training simulator and focuses on the reasons a utility should incorporate the use of a simulator in the dispatchers' training program. In the second report, the issues associated with simulation modeling of a real power system versus generic power system modeling are identified. The third report is a description of the problems experienced with use of a simulator for power system simulation drills. The fourth report gives a set of criteria for establishing an adequate training staff to support training using a power system simulation tool. In the final report, the challenges in establishing a facility that is suitable for dispatcher training are explained
