"Out of Step Rapid Voltage Collapse Tutorial" scheduled to be held on
A recent headline from Associated Press:
"Power Swings Seen Hours Before Blackout (AP) - The Midwest power system recorded numerous voltage swings as early as midday Thursday, long before high-voltage lines failed south of Cleveland."
This presentation will answer the questions like: What is a power swing? What is the meaning of power system stability, stable system/unstable system?
The basic concept of Power System Stability will be introduced. Role of protective relaying will be explored.
