A Feasibility Solution of a Synchronous Generator for Optimisation of the System Power Stability using an Integrated Development Environment of Visual Basic-Excel
International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology
Power systems are considered highly non-linear because the environment in which they operate keep changing and hence require iterative mathematical techniques to analyse them. Such changes have a resultant effect on the system's stability. Fluctuations in parameters are experienced in loads across the networks of the system, generator's outputs, network topology and other operating parameters. Practically, there is no analytical solution exists for solving the problem of stability. On the other

Runge-kutta method is one of these techniques which has been used broadly as it calculates every step in a sequence of sub-steps. The method relies on a complex mathematical modelling of the synchronous generator with the help of Park-Gorev's transformation, for the sake of simplicity and intuitiveness the method is used to analyse and study the complex equations of the three-phase synchronous generator. Generally, the system is said to be stable if the opposing forces within it are balanced and at a perfect equilibrium. The aims of this research are to establish the effects of synchronous generator's design and transient conditions upon power system stability with the help of Embedded Microsoft Excel Sheet based on Power System Stability Analysis (EMES-PSS), using the Runge-Kutta integration method. The study has proved that EMES-PSS can find the limits of Salient and Non-Salient machines stability when changing their essential parameters. The optimisation solutions of the power system stability problem can be achieved by using basic computational resources. The software can also be used on a number of modern tablets e.g., Apple's tablets.
