This paper presents a simulator for training operators in hydroelectric minipower stations. Various models that allow simulation in different ways of operating a hydroelectric minipower station have been developed. In the same way a users interface has also been developed so the final program can be used to train future operators in this type of installations. Simulink® has been used to implement the mathematical system and the interface has been implemented with Matlab® in a way that the work is all integrated in only one program. Some standard models such as SymPowerSystems® of Matlab®, have also been used.
