Synchronous Machine Regulators

  • Federico Milano
Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS, volume 0)


This chapter describes the most relevant synchronous machines primary regulators and limiters. These are the turbine governor, the automatic voltage regulator and the over- and under-excitation limiters. These regulators are the dynamic counterpart of the static capability curve described in Section 12.2.1 of Chapter 12. Furthermore, this chapter also describes the power system stabilizer that allows efficiently damping synchronous machine rotor oscillations. Figure 16.1 provides a synoptic scheme of the synchronous machine regulators described in this chapter.
