After dealing in the two previous chapters with transmission and generation aspects, we come now to the third factor of voltage instability: power system loads. Load dynamic response is a key mechanism of power system voltage stability driving the dynamic evolution of voltages and, in extreme cases, leading to voltage collapse.
