Abstract

ABSTRACT Synchronous generator loss of field can compromise both generator and power grid stability and therefore must be quickly detected. In this thesis, a new proposed method for LOF detection has been further explored and its shortcomings corrected.The detection index has been calculated based on these new modifications. The modifications include a more robust delta estimation technique and a removal of a required algorithm condition. Two methods are used to estimate the rotor angle and bothprovide a similar estimation. The first method depends on the integration of the rotor speed over time, while the second method is based on equations presented in a published paper. Moreover, the algorithm was tested on both a 2-bus system and the IEEE 9-bus system to investigate the detection time, security and reliability of the proposed method. The simulation model wasbuiltusing a Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) to simulate generator loss of excitation on a 2-bus and 9-bus system. The algorithm was then tested under various operating conditions (normal system conditions and disturbances). The advantages and drawbacks of the proposed algorithm are discussed in the thesis.
