Synchronous generators are a primary source of reactive power and are to a great extent responsible for maintaining a good voltage profile across a power system. Consequently their characteristics and their limitations are of major importance for the analysis of voltage stability. It is worth noting that in almost all voltage instability incidents, one or several crucial generators were operating with limited reactive capability.
