Power System Analysis
The equivalent circuit parameters of many power system components are described in Chapters 3, 6, and 8.
The interconnection of the different elements allows development of an overall power system model. The
system model provides the basis for computational simulation of the system performance under a wide
variety of projected operating conditions. Additionally, ‘‘post mortem’’ studies, performed after system
disturbances or equipment failures, often provide valuable insight into contributing system conditions.
The different types of power system analyses are discussed below; the type of analysis performed depends on
the conditions to be assessed.
