Chaotic oscillation of a nonlinear power system

  • Zhang Weinian
  • Zhang Weidong


For a nonlinear power transmission system, the residue calculus method is introduced and applied to study its heteroclinic bifurcation. There a cone region and a strip region of parameters are obtained, in which the power transmission system displays chaotic oscillation. This gives a theoretic analysis and a computational method for the purpose to control the nonlinear system with deviation stably running.
