Nonlinear Control of Single-Machine-Infinite-Bus Transient Stability

Ford, Jason J., Ledwich, Gerard F., & Dong, Z.Y. (2006) Nonlinear Control of Single-Machine-Infinite-Bus Transient Stability. In Power Engineering Society General Meeting, 2006, 18-22 June 2006.


Of increasing importance in network design is the requirement to control power system transient stability following large disturbances. If series or shunt control devices are available within the network, then improvements to the transient properties of the network can generally be made (both from the perspective of preventing angular separation and improving damping). This paper uses non-linear control (dynamic programming) to examine the transient stability problem for single machine infinite bus systems. The developed approach explains the suitability of several existing approaches, as well as identifies some new ideas that may be applicable to the transient stability problem for multi-generator power systems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
