This paper presents summaries of five research and development activities in intelligent distributed simulation and control of power plants which were presented in a panel session of the same name at the IEEE Power Engineering Society Winter Meeting on February 6, 1997 in New York City. Each of the panelists discussed methods of how they have incorporated intelligent systems techniques into their research and development efforts in power plant control. The panel was organized by the Working Group on Intelligent Methods in Station Control, Station Control Subcommittee, and the Energy Development and Power Generation Committee of the IEEE Power Engineering Society.
