Determining the transient stability models for generators at Kariba North Bank power station
MetadataShow full item record
Electrical energy is an essential ingredient for the industry and all-round development of a country. It is transmitted, from its sources to far located places of utilisation, by large interconnected power systems within which synchronous machines operate.In practice, these power systems are subjected to a number of disturbances of which the most severe is a large and sudden one having a remote possibility that an initial disturbance may lead to a regional blackout, which present us with a transient stability problem.Since the main requirement is that the machines go on operating even under such extreme conditions, there is inevitable need to determine conditions which provide indication for system transient stability assessment. Since system generators play a decisive role in power system operation and stability, their transient stability assessment implies the assessment for the system within which they operate.
