Modeling of Damping for Power System Stability Analysis
Abstract:The modeling of damping for power system stability analysis is revisited, and types of power system damping are described. Current practices in modeling damping are considered, including the representation of damper windings in generators. The effect of not modeling damping accurately in stability studies is considered, and some misconceptions are pinpointed. Finally, some suggestions are presented to improve the damping representation in power systems and to improve the validity of results obtained from power system stability analyses.
