Power-Electronics-Enabled Transient Stabilization of Power Systems

  title={Power-Electronics-Enabled Transient Stabilization of Power Systems},
  author={Milo{\vs} Cvetkovi{\'c}},
Transient stability of electric energy grids is defined as the ability of the power system to remain in synchronism during large disturbances. If the grid is not equipped with controllers capable of transiently stabilizing system dynamics, large disturbances could cause protection to trigger disconnecting the equipment and leading further to cascading system-wide blackouts. Today’s practice of tuning controllers generally does not guarantee a transiently stable response because it does not use…
