PSS2B…contd    When using speed as an input signal. torsional oscillations may occur creating disturbance in measurement The solution lies in using several sensors &/or a torsional filter Therefore. the Integral of accelerating power-based stabilizer or PSS2B was developed to overcome this 9 .

These use the speed or frequency input for the generation of an equivalent mechanical power signal..  10 . These systems usually use the speed directly (i. to make the total signal insensitive to mechanical power change b) Stabilizers that use a combination of speed (or frequency) and electrical power. in the frequency range of system oscillations.e.PSS2B…contd Represents two distinct types of dual-input stabilizer implementations: a) Stabilizers that. act as electrical power input stabilizers. without phase-lead compensation) and add a signal proportional to electrical power to achieve the desired stabilizing signal shaping.

which can be tuned individually to handle different oscillation frequencies 14 . the tuning procedure of the single-band stabilizers have to compromise and will not achieve optimal damping in any of the oscillations The multi-band stabilizer has three separate signal bands.PSS4B…contd     Also known as multi-band stabilizer Motivation: lead/lag compensating filters in the older structures could not give an accurate compensation over a wide range of oscillation frequencies If the network suffers from low and high frequency oscillations.

Next we consider performance evaluation of PSS2B and PSS4B 15 .PSS4B…contd    The low band is typically associated with the power system global mode. Δω L-I feeds the low and intermediate bands. while ΔωH is dedicated to the high-frequency band. and the high with the local modes The PSS4B measures the rotor speed deviation in two different ways. the intermediate with the interarea modes.

SMIB Scenario  Gain margins and phase margins were evaluated for the following benchmark system [5]  The stabilizers have a robust performance satisfy the conventional criteria of a minimum of 6 dB and 30° for gain and phase margins. respectively 16 .

Multi-machine scenario  Damping performance was evaluated for the well known Kundur Test system [6]  PSS4B outperforms PSS2B by providing better damping under all oscillatory modes 18 .

Alternative Types of PSS 1. Based on shaft speed signal (Δω)    Earliest PSS (1960s) to be used with hydraulic units Measurement is prone to noise and can lead to inaccuracies Needs several measurement points and a torsional filter thus adding to complexity and cost Based on the equation 2. Combination of shaft speed and power (Δ-P-ω)  22 .

…contd  The integral of mech power is related to shaft speed and elec power as:  The overall TF is: 23 .

…contd Major advantages: 1. Measurement becomes simple with the use of end of shaft speed sensing arrangement and also allows used of standard design for all units irrespective of torsional charactersitics  24 . The ΔPe signal a high degree of attenuation towards torsional oscillations eliminating the need for a torsional filter 2.
