Modeling and simulation experiments play an integral part in the engineering education. Construction and testing of models offers a safe environment for students to develop their critical thinking and improve their modeling skills using problem-based learning and links with theoretical knowledge. We have produced teaching aids for a laboratory workshop based on models simulating the elements of electric power systems. The workshop is part of an online course, Mathematical Modeling in Electric Power Systems, for students majoring in Electric Power Engineering. One of the most important purposes of the discipline is to equip students with skills needed to construct and analyze mathematical models. Moreover, students obtain knowledge on forms of mathematical description of steady-state and transient power system modes, ways to enter input information, as well as algorithms for solving systems of equations and optimization problems. The laboratory workshop makes it possible to achieve the required learning outcomes in both face-to-face and distance learning environments. Laboratory sessions contribute to the appeal of learning due to the advanced modeling media used in the process. The skills of modeling and simulation experiments allow students to apply their knowledge to explore phenomena and processes they face in their everyday life and will encounter in the future as part of their professional activities. Modeling and studying the elements of electric power systems and networks may contribute to student motivation through combining theory and practice: it involves advanced software packages as well as analysis and comparison of results obtained by two approaches. The teaching aids may be used for other courses related to modeling elements of electric power systems. In this research, we present the newly developed models as well as the algorithm to complete the laboratory workshop on constructing and studying model power lines.
