Resynchronization of a slipping synchronous machine Metcalfe, Malcolm Stuart


In this thesis, resynchronization of a synchronous machine from a slipping state is considered. A set of equations for the slipping machine are developed. Slip tests on a dynamic test model are done to compare with computed results. A critical damping necessary for resynchronization is investigated, and an expression is derived. Tests are again carried out on a power system set up on the dynamic test model to verify the result. Finally, a nonlinear optimal control is developed and implemented on the test model.
