Abstract

This paper describes the development of a parallel version of the transient energy function method program on an IBM 3090-600E supercomputer. The step by step procedure to convert a sequential code to a parallel environment is detailed. The parallel code is then tested on a 50-generator Ontario Hydro network. With six parallel processors, an elapsed time speedup of 5.36 is obtained.
