Benchmark Systems for Small-Signal Stability Analysis and Control

The objective of this website is to maintain a database with a set of benchmark models that could be used by the research community on small signal stability analysis and control to compare small-signal stability analysis methods and algorithms, as well as to compare different power system stabilizer (PSS) tuning procedures. These benchmarks highlight a number of practical aspects and issues that should be observed while proposing a new tuning procedure for the PSSs (or a new type of power oscillation damper (POD) to enhance the poor damping of the electromechanical oscillations exhibited in each system without adversely impacting other oscillatory modes and other aspects of the system transient response.

Brief description of the main feature of each benchmark system:

Report of the IEEE PES Task Force on Benchmark Systems for Stability Controls

This web site was produced as part of the work carried out by the IEEE PES Task Force on Benchmark Systems for Stability Controls. The reports and implementations contained in it were developed by the contributors to this Task Force, but they are not peer-reviewed documents. The authors are not committed to provide any support to potential users (although they can be contacted and do so on a voluntary basis). Any citation of the reports distributed by this web site should mention them as working papers.

The interested user and/or reader can find a consistent documentation of the benchmark systems in the Technical Report of the mentioned Task Force, which is available for download at the PES Resource Center. The download is free for PES members, but charges apply for non-members (even those who are IEEE members).
