Chapter 5The Transient Energy Function Method Applied to the Classical Power System Model
In this chapter we present a general overview of the transient energy function (TEF) method applied to the classical power system model developed in Chapter 2. The TEF using the center of inertia (COI) formulation will be developed for a multimachine power system. The various steps involved in conducting the transient stability assessment procedure using the TEF method will be described.
In detailing the aspects of the TEF method, the various components of the energy function will be described, and the energy contributing to system separation will be identified. A measure of the degree of stability (or instability) in terms of the transient ...
