Recognizing an increasing role of commercial modelling software in the power industry, Study Committee A3 decided to evaluate existing simulation technologies to determine the extent to which they can be used as verification tools to enhance understanding of equipment performance, to extrapolate test results, to provide an alternative to testing, or to replace some of the tests. WG A3.20 compiled an inventory of electrical, mechanical, thermal, magnetic, and other stresses which "A3-type" components (substation equipment except transformers) are subjected to in service, based on the relevant tests mandated by IEC/ANSI standards. For all investigated applications, WG A3.20 listed expected simulation results and the preferred numerical methods to be used for different specific problems. An assessment has been made to determine to what degree such stresses can be simulated.
