In power network analysis it is increasingly desirable to implement controller and power systems models within different software environments. This stems from, among other things, an increasing influence of new and distrib-uted control functions within smart grids and a growing influence of market operations. The computation time re-sulting from use of multiple simulation environments can cause significant delays and constrain the number of scenarios considered. This paper introduces and com-pares several techniques for integrating external control system models into power systems models for time do-main simulations. In particular, a new technique is reported in this paper for PowerFactory-MATLAB/Simulink co-simulation interfaces, which offers a significant advantage over alternative methods in terms of the reduction in simulation runtimes and flexi-bility for the end user.
