This paper summarizes the work performed in one of the work-package of the FP7 iTesla project. This work consisted in the development of a power system component library for phasor time domain simulation in Modelica.

The models were used to build power system network models; used in experiments for parameter identification. The experiments were carried out with the RAPID toolbox; which has been developed at SmarTS Lab within the same project. The toolbox was written in MATLAB; making use of FMI Technologies for interacting with Modelica models.
