Application of a booster cap in static excitation system for stability improvement of synchronous generators
September 2008 - August 2009
Funding entity Alstom
Alstom has developed a booster capacitor to add to static excitation system to improve the stability of the synchronous generator in case of faults. We will support Alstom in the modelling and simulation of this system so its value is shown. This project will be undertaken in cooperation with EPFL.
- *Stability: large disturbance stability, tuning of frequency loadshedding schemes, excitation control, small disturbance stability, tuning of power system stabilizers, identification of AVR and governor models
