A software visualization tool is developed to help in teaching core power systems analysis problems in introductory undergraduate courses. The power system analysis concepts visualization tool consists of simulation applications that focus on three problems: load flow, economic dispatch, and unit commitment. It incorporates user-friendly effective graphical interfaces that aid students in acquiring deeper understanding of the power system problems and developing the analytical skills needed in industry. The learning tools are implemented in C# language for platform-independence to increase accessibility. Evaluation of the visualization tool shows very encouraging results.
