Wide deployment of sensing and actuation capabilities in the electric power grid, along with changing dynamical characteristics, are necessitating analysis of power-system swing dynamics from an input-output perspective. In this article, the input-output properties of the swing dynamics, including the finite and infinite zeros, are characterized from a dynamical-networks perspective. Specifically, an explicit algebraic characterization is given for a matrix whose eigenvalues are the zeros, and…

Input-Output Properties of the Power Grid’s Swing Dynamics: Dependence on Network Parameters

This study examines how transfer functions in the classical swing dynamics model depend on network model parameters and the channel location, focusing particularly on determining conditions under which the transfer function is guaranteed to be minimum phase or conversely nonminimum phase.

Using Demand Response to Shape the Fast Dynamics of the Bulk Power Network

The design of demand response strategies is pursued, with the aim of modulating the network’s operating point so as to achieve desirable small-signal characteristics, and the smallest damping ratio of the generator modes and the finite zeros of the input-output transfer function can be improved.

System-theoretic performance metrics for low-inertia stability of power networks

A rigorous system-theoretic study of performance metrics for low-inertia stability for networks with uniform parameters finds that the H2 and norms can display contradictory behavior as functions of the system inertia, indicating that low- inertia performance depends strongly on the chosen performance metric.
