# How to calculate the eigenvalues of a power system?

I am researching the analysis of power systems in the Matlab simulink environment. I'm studying power systems with various numbers of busbars, such as 5,9,14.

It is in fact solution of det [sI-A], where 's' is the scalar Laplace Operator corresponding to d/dt, I is the identity or Unity Matrix with Diagonal elements as 1, while all off-diagonal elements are zero, A is the System Matrix of order n. Thus matrix [sI-A] is also of the order of n. There will be n roots or eigen values.
Once you form A, then under MATLAB, command is as follows:
B=eig(A). where through a column vector of n rows B will provide eigen values, real or complex conjugate.
If you wish to know about eigen vectors in addition, then command is as given below:
[V,D] = eig(A), where matrix V gives corresponding eigen vectors and matrix D is a Diagonal Matrix with eigen values as its diagonal elements.
It will be clear from the following example of third order system:
A = [4 3 -1;-2 0 2;3 3 0];
>> B = eig(A)
B =
0.0000
1.0000
3.0000
>> [V,D] = eig(A)
V =
-0.5774 0.7071 0.7071
0.5774 -0.5657 0.0000
-0.5774 0.4243 0.7071
D =
0.0000 0 0
0 1.0000 0
0 0 3.0000
Hope it clarifies and satisfies the need.

Mathematically it is the solution of det [sI-A] = 0, to say correctly, and also for linearized power system it is the characteristic equation.

Abstract: The requirements for high-current circuits, contact systems, switchboards, and electrical apparatuses differ from the typical requirements for devices with a low current load, not only because those are more complex, but also because new requirements arise due to the fact that the size of the designed devices and power systems is constant...
