Improved Stability with Low Time Constant Rotating Exciter

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors discuss the improved stability performance offered by a low rise time, high response excitation system to be installed on Unit No. 1 at the Diablo Canyon Site.
Abstract: This paper discusses the improved stability performance offered by a low rise time, high response excitation system to be installed on Unit No. 1 at the Diablo Canyon Site. Such an excitation system is provided by a low time constant rotating exciter with minor loop current feedback.

TL;DR: In this article, the stability of synchronous machines under small perturbations is explored by examining the case of a single machine connected to an infinite bus through external reactance, and the results are shown to be similar to ours.

TL;DR: This paper suggests a common nomenclature and control system representation of the various excitation systems now available that can be used to define input data requirements for computer programs, and can provide a consistent format in which manufacturers can respond to requests for excitation system data to be used for system studies.
Abstract: The availability of large digital computers has permitted more extensive computation of power system stability, a subject of increasingly greater importance. This paper suggests a common nomenclature and control system representation of the various excitation systems now available. It can be used to define input data requirements for computer programs, and can provide a consistent format in which manufacturers can respond to requests for excitation system data to be used for system studies.

TL;DR: In this article, a field test program is described which was used to evaluate and then to adjust the 33 power system stabilizers installed on the Pacific Gas and Electric Company's system.
Abstract: A field test program is described which was used to evaluate and then to adjust the 33 power system stabilizers installed on the Pacific Gas and Electric Company's system. Also included is a comparison of the results of these tests with those of a digital computer simulation.
