Transient Stability Analysis

The recovery of a power system subjected to a severe large disturbance is of interest to system planners and operators. Typically the system must be designed and operated in such a way that a specified number of credible contingencies do not result in failure of quality and continuity of power supply to the loads. This calls for accurate calculation of the system dynamic behavior, which includes the electro-mechanical dynamic characteristics of the rotating machines, generator controls, static var compensators, loads, protective systems and other controls. Transient stability analysis can be used for dynamic analysis over time periods from few seconds to few minutes depending on the time constants of the dynamic phenomenon modeled. Transient Stability Analysis is the PowerApps simulation module dedicated to simulating electromechanical transients in three phase electric power systems. It features an extensive library of equipment and controller models, the capability to include user-defined controls, a very flexible user-interface and powerful graphics. Transient Stability Analysis module utilizes the simultaneous implicit trapezoidal integration solution technique for network, machine and controller equations. The program supports the capability to test the step response of controllers and User Defined Modeling for system equipment and controllers.

Criteria for System Transient Stability Assessment

The concept of Synchronism of all running generators is not the correct interpretation of the system Transient Stability. It is possible that synchronism between different groups of Synchronous machines can be lost, yet the different sub groups can function in stable manner meeting quality power requirements to the customers within their geographical jurisdiction. The more acurate definition of transient stability is determined from controlled damping of frequencies, line loads, and bus voltages after disturbing events and in the time frame of the transient stability as determined by the time constants modeled in the simulation.

Estimation of crtical clearing time must consider the discussion or view point mentioned in the assessment of the Transient Stability

General Features of Transient Stability Analysis

Reports and Recommendations from Transient Stability Studies

  1. Plots of Dynamic response of Generator rotor angles, frequencies, power outputs, voltages, excitation system outputs, governor-prime mover outputs
  2. Plots of Line Flows, transformer flows, bus voltages, bus frequencies
  3. Plots of Motor dynamic variables where required
  4. Plots of the system variables that are of interest from protection point of view [example frequencies, distances seen from distance relays, fault currents seen from overcurrent relays etc]
  5. Recommendation related to protection and control, operating strategy, Control settings of equipments [for example power system stabilizer, relay settings, load shedding schmes etc], based on various study cases considered
