Power System Stability and Control
Keywords:Transmission Line, Transformer, Stability of Power transmission, FACTS devices, Controllers
The electric power generation-transmission-distribution grid in developed countries constitutes a large
system that exhibits a range of dynamic phenomena. Stability of this system needs to be maintained even when
subjected to large low-probability disturbances so that the electricity can be supplied to consumers with high
reliability. Various control methods and controllers have been developed over time that has been used for this
purpose. However, in the area of communications and power electronics, have raised the possibility of developing
much faster and more wide-area stability control that can allow safe operation of the grid closer to its limits.
