There is an increasing trend in the electric utilities to perform real-time simulation of power systems to test their protection and control hardware. The real-time simulation can become prohibitively expensive for large power systems. A solution to this is to divide the system into an internal system where all details are important and an external system (the rest of the system) where some details are not important.
