Power System Toolbox - this is a suite of MATLABŪ-based power system simulation code originally developed by me and Dr. Kwok W. Cheung in the early 1990s. It has been substantially upgraded by Dr. Graham Rogers at Cherry Tree Scientific Software. Note that this is a free software and not supported. A user can read the manual or see the textbooks listed above.
