Simulation
Welcome to the Electric Power Training Center. We are devoted to providing the highest quality power system operations training. Our courses are designed for a wide range of audiences, from power plant operators, to dispatchers, or anyone else with an interest in learning about the principles and operation of power generation, transmission and interconnected system operations. In addition to our excellent instruction staff, we are equipped with powerful simulation tools, including the unique Miniature Power System (MPS). The MPS is a self-contained, fully operational power system simulator with over 40 full-size panels of operator controls. It includes three generators, a wind farm, four substations, many hundreds of miles of transmission lines, a dispatch center, and a variety of loads spread throughout the system.

2014 Fall Protection Symposium and Roundtable - July 8-9, 2014

Western Area Power Administration is hosting a Fall Protection Symposium and Roundtable to discuss the newly released Occupational Health and Safety Administration regulations for fall protection.  At this summit, utilities from across North America will share their current fall protection programs together, brainstorm and share techniques, processes and procedures that will help utilities meet the new standards and better protect our electric workers from dangerous falls.  Attendees will hear presentations by utilities, contractors, training entities and vendors and also have plenty of time to network and interact with both their peers and presenters.
