This book presents comprehensive mathematical models of turbine-generators, HVDC and FACTS controllers, and small signal analysis of SSR. The emphasis is on the analysis using linearized models. Both damping torque and eigenvalue analysis are covered. Also included are the basic concepts of SSR interactions with fixed series compensation, PSS, HVDC, and FACTS controllers. Timely treatment has been given to the development of electrical analogue for the rotor system, the derivation of the network equations based on circuit topology and immittance functions using D-Q variables. The material is supported by several illustrative examples and case studies based on IEEE benchmark models.
Analysis of Subsynchronous Resonance in Power Systems is an invaluable reference work for power systems researchers, system planners, and designers.
