Power system stability studies using Liapunov methods Metwally, Magda Mohsen


The transient stability of power systems is investigated using Liapunov's direct method. Willems' method is applied to three-and four-machine power systems with the effect of damping included. The distribution of damping among the machines of a multi-machine system is studied, and optimum ratios are derived. An extension of Willems' method is used to include governor action in the system representation. Finally, the effect of flux decay on stability regions is studied using Chen's method.
