Transient Stability Analysis

Transient Stability Analysis

ETAP’s advanced Transient Stability analysis provides accurate power system modeling for dynamic simulation. Engineers use Transient Stability to identify critical clearing time, to model motor dynamic acceleration (including change in system frequency), to develop load shedding schedules, to perform fast bus transfer calculation limits, for the start-up of generators under normal and emergency conditions, and for calculating various system dynamics. With the ETAP Transient Stability module, you can energize/synchronize multiple isolated systems or split a system into multiple subsystems. One of the most powerful tools in the Electrical Transient Analysis Software is the ability to automatically simulate relay actions (including time delays) and associated circuit breaker operations (with their time delays).

Electrical Transient Stability is also the foundation for doing custom block diagram modeling for Governor/Turbine, Exciter/AVR, and PSS modeling via the User-Defined Dynamic Models Modules.

The Generator Start-Up module enhances Transient Stability even further. It enables engineers to test the pre-loading of generators before they reach synchronization. This is commonly done under emergency conditions for large Hydro and Nuclear power plants when starting emergency diesel generators.
