  journal={2011 IEEE Electrical Power and Energy Conference},
In this paper suitability of applying graphics processing unit (GPU) based computing for electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation of large scale power systems is demonstrated. As the network size increases there is a corresponding increase in simulation time with conventional central processing unit (CPU) based simulation tools. The paper shows that with a hybrid environment consisting of CPUs and GPUs, simulation time is much less compared to the CPU-only implementations. In this scheme the… CONTINUE READING
