Power System Dynamics
The transition from electric grids that interconnected a well defined fleet of large steam and gas turbine machines to interconnections of much less well defined fleets of electronically based machines is well under way. Questions arose as the transition was getting started asking whether the operation and control methods that have evolved with the existing electric grids will be able to control and manage the new grid configurations that are now taking shape. This talk will touch on some of the differences, and some of the similarities between the grids of the large rotating machine era and the now-emerging electronic grids. Consideration of these points leads to a view of how control equipment and operating practices are likely to evolve.z

Resilience Value and Metrics of Grid
What is driving our industry to improve performance? As resilience becomes a critical factor for ensuring a reliable grid in the face of significant change and increasing risks, this presentation will provide an overview of current state vs. long-term strategy for managing the challenge of measuring resilience, the value it adds to reliability and how to balance the integration of risk, regulatory and customer concerns as it evolves. It will also discuss general ideas for defining resilience metrics, applying these under differing conditions (extreme weather, climate related risk) and how this will benefit the customers of electric power.

Dynamic Modelling and Simulation of Synchronous Generators
This webinar will provide the background motivation and need for dynamic modelling and simulation of synchronous generators in electric power systems. It will begin with an introduction to time scales and the issues encountered with different phenomena and applications. It will provide a detailed derivation and explanation of a typical dynamic model used in modern software in various levels of complexity. It will provide the same approach to the voltage excitation system that is typically used with synchronous generators. It will also include the same approach to the speed control of the synchronous generator.
