This paper describes the implementation of a real-time power system simulator based on a distributed cluster of PC desktop computers. A Real-time power system simulator based on a PC-cluster can successfully cope with the size requirements of growing power systems and the computational demands of fast transient studies. The distributed version of OVNI is used as core solver in addition to a developed I/O interface card. Models based on the standard tool for power systems transient's simulations, the EMTP program, optimized for real time performance, assure accurate simulation results.
