[en] This paper reports on investigations to speed up time domain simulations of large electric power systems. First, a decomposed scheme is considered which exploits the bordered block diagonal structure of the original Jacobian involved in the Newton iterations, and keeps the resulting “local” Jacobians constant over multiple iterations. Next, a localization technique is considered, allowing to perform less iterations on the system components with lower activity. Finally, a third scheme consists of visiting only a subset of components, identified as active, and skipping the other ones, identified as latent. The first two techniques solve the whole set of equations with the required accuracy, while the third one involves an adjustable degree of approximation. The methods are illustrated on a small system, while preliminary checks of computational savings from a large test system are reported. Additional results deal with the application of the localization and latency techniques to simplified simulation of the detailed model.
