This paper presents a tutorial on the implementation of a simplified controllable source in the Alternative Transients Program (ATP) environment, which is capable of representing electrical energy resources and loads with settable active and reactive power. The model is developed in the ATPDraw platform, taking advantage of the MODELS programming language and Transient Analysis of Control Systems (TACS) elements. To address the proposed source potentialities, examples are presented, including a comparison with a detailed photovoltaic ATP/ATPDraw benchmark power plant model. The results demonstrate that the proposed source is accurate and reliable for stable voltage conditions, allowing the ATP/ATPDraw to be easily used as an alternative platform for power flow studies, facilitating the representation of loads and inverter-based resources in steady-state conditions.
