The reliability and efficiency of electric power system (EPS) operation depends on the adequacy of the information about processes in the EPS. The complexity of obtaining this information lies in the need to use large-scale EPS mathematical model for calculations. Within the framework of numerical integration, a satisfactory solution of such model is hardly to be ensured; consequently, the simplifications and limitations are applied. In this regard, every obtained solution should be validated. The most reliable way of validation is to compare simulation results with field data. However, it is not always possible to receive the necessary amount of field data. The paper proposes an alternative approach for validation: the adequate reference model (RM) usage instead of field data. The prototype of hybrid real-time power system simulator having the necessary properties and capabilities is used as the RM in this paper. The adequacy of proposed approach is illustrated by the fragments of the experimental studies.
