1.. Transient stability analysis of a 9-bus, 3-machine, 60 Hz power system with the following system modelling requirements:
i. Classical model for all synchronous machines, models for excitation and speed
governing systems not included.
(a) Simulate a three-phase fault at the end of the line from bus 5 to bus 7 near bus 7 at time = 0.0 sec. Assume that the fault is cleared successfully by opening the line 5-7 after 5 cycles
( 0.083 sec) . Observe the system for 2.0 seconds
(b) Obtain the following time domain plots:
- Relative angles of machines 2 and 3 with respect to machine 1
- Angular speed deviations of machines 1, 2 and 3 from synchronous speed
- Active power variation of machines 1, 2 and 3.
(c) Determine the critical clearing time by progressively increasing the fault clearing
