An on-line transient stability emergency control approach is proposed, which couples an open-loop and a closed-loop emergency control technique. The open-loop technique uses on-line transient stability assessment in order to adapt the settings of automatic system protection schemes to the current operating conditions. On the other hand, the closed-loop technique uses measurements in order to design and trigger countermeasures, after the contingency has actually happened, then to continue

The approach aims at combining advantages of event-based and measurement-based system protection schemes, namely, speed of action and robustness with respect to uncertainties in system modeling. It can also comply with economic criteria.
