In this work a framework for modeling power systems using Hybrid Input/ Output Automata (HIOA) is proposed. The system is assumed to consist of several distinct components. Some of them drive the continuous dynamics while others exhibit event-driven discrete dynamics. Such behavior is characterized by interactions between continuous dynamics and discrete events. Therefore the power systems are an important example of hybrid systems. This hybrid modeling process is applied to a simple power system.
