The power system is a highly nonlinear system that works in a continually fluctuating environment; loads, generator outputs, topology, and key operating parameters change frequently. When subjected to a temporary disturbance, the stability of the system depends on the nature of the disturbance as well as the initial operating condition.

Because of the high dimensionality and complexity of stability problems, it is essential to make simplifying assumptions and to analyze specific types of problems using the right degree of detail of system representation.

Control and Dynamics in Power Systems and Microgrids brings together state of the art reviews of the emergence of different forms of stability problems of power systems. Requirements for consideration of stability in system design and operation are discussed.

The book also offers insight into practical examples, state-of-the-art control design tools, and advanced control concepts to explain traditional power system dynamics and control. It presents comprehensive insights on power stability problems and the basic concepts of modeling and analysis of dynamical systems. Modeling of power system components – generators, transmission lines, and excitation and prime mover controllers – is covered in detail.

This book serves as valuable guide for students, practicing engineers as well as for researchers who are working in the development of power system technologies.
