Power System Voltage Stability

Power System Voltage Stability: Power System Voltage Stability – Power transmission capability has traditionally been limited by either rotor angle (synchronous) stability or by thermal loading capabilities. The blackout problem has been linked with transient stability. Luckily this problem is now not that serious because of fast short circuit clearing, powerful excitation systems, and other […]

Sensitivity Factors

Sensitivity Factors: Sensitivity Factors – A security analysis program is run in a load dispatch centre very quickly to help the operators. This can be attempted by carrying out an approximate analysis and using a computer system having multiple processors or vector processors for speedy analysis. The system may be adequately described and an equivalent […]

Contingency Analysis

Contingency Analysis: Contingency Analysis – In the past many widespread blackouts have occurred in interconnected power systems. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that power systems should be operated most economically such that power is delivered reliably. Reliable operation implies that there is adequate power generation and the same can be transmitted reliably to the […]

Security Analysis

Security Analysis: Security Analysis – System security can be broken down into two major functions that are carried out in an operations control centre: (i) security assessment, and (ii) security control. The former gives the security level of the system operating state. The latter determines the appropriate security constrained scheduling required to optimally attain the […]

Power System Analysis

Introduction to Power System Analysis: In Power System Analysis we have been primarily concerned with the economical operation of a power system. An equally important factor in the operation of a power system is the desire to maintain system security. System security involves practices suitably designed to keep the system operating when components fail. Besides […]
