Poorly-damped electromechanical oscillations are of concern in the western North American power system. Recent development of reliable real-time wide-area measurement systems has enabled the potential for large-scale damping control approaches for stabilizing critical oscillation modes. The current approach being developed is feedback modulation of the Pacific DC Intertie (PDCI). This paper summarizes several years of open-loop actual-system PDCI probing tests. This includes a total of 56 tests… CONTINUE READING
