It is noted that the general introduction of alternative energy sources is a strategic direction of modern energy supply. Today when increasing the efficiency and environmental safety of modern energy generating facilities, it is very important to reduce the negative far-reaching consequences for the environment. To achieve this, it is proposed to introduce modern cyber-physical systems on existing energy objects with the possibility of operative control of their measuring channels in real time. It is suggested to use portable code-controlled measures-simulators to ensure the efficiency of measurements in dispersed information measuring devices of power systems. The application of such measures allows practically implementing measurement control systems that ensure the suitability of measuring methods and measuring equipment to its intended use and the risk specified level of obtaining improbable results of measurement. It is also shown that the operational control of the measuring channels’ parameters allows ensuring the metrological conformity of the dispersed cyber-physical systems, since traditional methods in this case practically cannot be used. It demonstrates that construction of passive electric values calibrators disparate of active one, is associated with fundamental constraints due to the significant influence of the switching elements parameters. It is confirmed that the implement of the simulating electric resistance principle for a circuit part allows simultaneously increasing resolution, accuracy and reliability, and extending functionality. It is also shown that low-resistance (high-current and low-voltage) imitation ranges can implement four-clamping measures of an electric resistance by the error correction method of double-voltage inverting. The resistance imitator structure is proposed for the medium-resistance subband, which provides invariance for the connecting wires resistance influence, the circuit additive displacements and the unification with DC voltage calibrators. For the reproducible resistances subband expansion in high-resistance (high-voltage) area, code-controlled conductivity measures invariant to the residual parameters of switching elements are proposed and there are suitable for microelectronic accomplishment. It is suggested and analyzed code-controlled measures of admittance, which can be used for operative control of impedance meters. The suggested and analyzed code-controlled measure structures of electrical resistance and complex conductivity can be implemented in microelectronic applications in the basis of programmable systems on a chip. This enables the practical implementation of a universal portable calibrator of active and passive electric values with automatic error correction.
