Optimal use of the Terco-PST 2200 Power Station Simulator Acquired by the Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) Department has not been achieved yet. This paper aims to run power system analysis exercises in the machine using pre-specified test systems. The infinite bus is modeled to provide greater possibility in the simulation process. A mini-SCADA system is integrated with the machine to provide the researchers with the graphical data and transient analyses. Protective relays are evaluated and placed throughout the Terco simulator to provide system protection, reliability, and greater flexibility. A power system simulator software, the Electrical Transient Analyzer Power Program Power Station (ETAP PS), is used alongside the hardware simulations, using the same test systems. The results of the hardware and software simulations are compared and analyzed. Finally, specifications on the exercises their results, and the corresponding analyses are compiled into an instruction manual for future use in the Department's power engineering subjects.
