Power System Transient Stability Study Fundamentals

COURSE NO: E03-024
Power System Transient Stability Study Fundamentals
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course reviews the subject of transient stability calculations in a very structured fashion. First, modelling technique is shown for a generic power system, dynamic equipment is modelled in details and calculations are performed for selected disturbances throughout the system. A detailed explanation of modelling and calculation procedure is offered. Explained techniques can be implemented in any commercial power system software package.


The ability of a power system, containing two or more synchronous machines, to continue to operate after a change occurs on the system is a measure of its stability. The stability problem takes two forms: steady-state and transient. Steady-state stability may be defined as the ability of a power system to maintain synchronism between machines within the system following relatively slow load changes. Transient stability is the ability of the system to remain in synchronism under transient conditions, i.e., faults, switching operations, etc.


This 3 PDH online course is applicable to electrical engineers with a desire to learn about Power System Transient Stability Study Fundamentals.
