Detailed mathematical and simulation model of a synchronous generator
Keywords:block-diagram model, mathematical model, synchronous generator, short-circuit, transient stability
Synchronous generator theory has been known since the beginning of its use, but the modelling and analysis of synchronous generators is still very existent in the present-day. Modern digital computers enable development of detailed simulation models, thus individual power system elements, including synchronous generators, are represented by the highest degree order models in power system simulation software packages. In this paper, first, a detailed mathematical model of a synchronous generator is described. Then, a simulation model of a synchronous generator developed based on the presented mathematical model. Finally, a transient stability after a short-circuit is simulated using real generator parameters.
