ABSTRACT A so-called two-point estimation (TPE) method is presented in this paper for power system probabilistic small signal stability (PSSS) analysis. With the development of power systems under open access environment, it is highly desired to investigate power system stability with uncertainties in both system parameters and operating conditions. Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) method has been widely used for this purpose. However, this method is very time-consuming. The TPE based method proposed in this paper provides a way to solve this problem to some extent. It estimate the statistical characteristics of random variables with less calculation requirement while keeping enough calculating precision. The TPE based method for the PSSS analysis is outlined. Then, the model as well as the stable indices for power system PSSS are presented. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the simulation results on a 3- generator-9-node power system.

    ABSTRACT: The increasing use of wind farms and the uncertainties in their generation levels have led to new challenges in system dynamic behaviors and Small Signal Stability (SSS). This paper proposes a probabilistic method to investigate the impact of the wind farm generation uncertainty on power system SSS, based on the Monte Carlo simulation. The proposed method is stochastic in contrast to conventional deterministic methods, which only analyze the system dynamic behaviors in one operating point. It determines several operating points, based on wind farm generation levels and calculates the Probability Density Function (PDF) of critical eigenvalues. Then, Genetic Algorithm (GA) is used to optimize the Power System Stabilizers (PSS) parameters. A case study is carried out on the IEEE 16-machine system to demonstrate the effectiveness and validity of the proposed algorithms. The results of probabilistic stability analysis are compared with those of deterministic analysis. It is shown that variation of the wind farm generation levels can cause the instability, even though the system is stable according to the deterministic analysis. Also, the time domain simulation results show how such tunings can effectively improve the SSS performance under the wind farm generation uncertainties.

    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with linear systems under sustained random perturbations. The stochastic perturbation model is given by a bounded Markov diffusion process, as it appears, e.g., in the description of load or generation uncertainties of power systems. For such systems, the Lyapunov exponents describe necessary and sufficient conditions for almost sure asymptotic stability. The present article reviews several numerical methods for the computation of Lyapunov exponents and applies this methodology to international test systems: four machines - ten bus and ten machines -thirty nine bus.

    ABSTRACT: The impact of stochastic uncertainty brought about by the grid-connected wind farm penetration on power system small-signal stability is investigated in this paper. An analytical method to carry out the probabilistic analysis is proposed. The cumulants and central moments of the system critical eigenvalues are computed on the basis of the normal probabilistic distribution of wind power generation. The Gram-Charlier expansion is employed to obtain the probabilistic distribution of the eigenvalues. All the conclusions gained by the analytical method proposed have been confirmed by Monte Carlo simulations in the case study presented in the paper.
