Publication# Dynamic Aggregation of Generating Unit Models

1978

Journal paper

Abstract

A new technique is described for the automatic formation of dynamic equivalents of generating units represented by detailed models. The method applies to groups of generating units that are coherent. A coherent group of generating units, for a given perturbation, is a group of generators oscillating with the same angular speed, and terminal voltages in a constant complex ratio. Thus, the generating units belonging to a coherent group can be attached to a common bus, if necessary through an ideal, complex ratio transformer. The dynamic equivalent of a coherent group of generating units is a single generating unit that exhibits the same speed, voltage and total mechanical and electrical power as the group during any perturbation where those units remain coherent. The parameters of an equivalent model of governor, turbine, synchronous machine, excitation system and power system stabilizer are identified for each group of coherent units, by means of a least- square fit of their transfer functions. The technique is demonstrated with a large system stability data base. A brief discussion of paper is appended.

Centimetre–gram–second system of units

The centimetre–gram–second system of units (abbreviated CGS or cgs) is a variant of the metric system based on the centimetre as the unit of length, the gram as the unit of mass, and the second as the unit of time. All CGS mechanical units are unambiguously derived from these three base units, but there are several different ways in which the CGS system was extended to cover electromagnetism. The CGS system has been largely supplanted by the MKS system based on the metre, kilogram, and second, which was in turn extended and replaced by the International System of Units (SI).

Equivalent circuit

In electrical engineering, an equivalent circuit refers to a theoretical circuit that retains all of the electrical characteristics of a given circuit. Often, an equivalent circuit is sought that simplifies calculation, and more broadly, that is a simplest form of a more complex circuit in order to aid analysis. In its most common form, an equivalent circuit is made up of linear, passive elements. However, more complex equivalent circuits are used that approximate the nonlinear behavior of the original circuit as well.

Voltage regulator

A voltage regulator is a system designed to automatically maintain a constant voltage. A voltage regulator may use a simple feed-forward design or may include negative feedback. It may use an electromechanical mechanism, or electronic components. Depending on the design, it may be used to regulate one or more AC or DC voltages. Electronic voltage regulators are found in devices such as computer power supplies where they stabilize the DC voltages used by the processor and other elements.
