Benchmark Systems



Investigate various aspects of the dynamic performance of power systems at the level of a given machine, a company or area, or for the entire interconnected power system. This includes all aspects of power system stability, voltage and frequency regulation, and power system control that relate both to the assessment and enhancement of power system dynamic performance. This also includes control theory, modelling and computer simulation techniques that relate to the assessment and enhancement of power system dynamic performance. The committee is composed of numerous working groups (WGs) and task forces (TFs) that span its area of activity. These WGs and TFs report to two subcommittees under the committee: the Power System Stability Subcommittee and the Power System Stability Controls Subcommittee. The committee thus initiates and coordinates WGs, TFs, symposia, panel session and tutorials related to power system dynamic performance. The committee also cooperates with other interested groups in the development of standards that affect system dynamic performance, and where possible, with other groups on analytical models which affect system dynamic performance.
