Summary: Many large industrial plants installed cogeneration (combined heat and power (CHP)), or gas and steam generators to increase efficiency and reduce electricity cost. For increasing system reliability, generators also installed onsite to protect islanding operation in case of grid outage.

Adding synchronous generators to a power system tremendously increases system complexity and brings in stability concerns. Power system stabile operation requires all synchronous machines in an interconnected electrical system must remain in synchronism; otherwise the system will become unstable, or loss the stability. Once any of synchronous machines lost stability, unstable phenomena will propagate in a very fast fashion across entire network to cause system shutdown unless quick and sufficient protections are designed and put in place.

In this presentation, the speaker brings in his 40 years of experience in research/development and industry to review the most important dynamic characteristics on synchronous machine and control systems, describe basic models and techniques required for stability study and assessment, discuss essential concerns for performing transient stability study, and share some real system study cases.
