Abstract

This paper deals with the application of the method of normal forms fl-5] in the analysis of a specific aspect of system dynamic behavior in the Manitoba Hydro system. Following a major loss of transmission capacity on the Manitoba Hydro HVDC system (Nelson River system), and the subsequent operation of protection systems, there is a major deficit of generation in the remaining system, comprising Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The method of normal forms is; applied to determine the natural groupings which are formed by the machines in Manitoba Hydro due to nonlinear interaction. This grouping then provides a basis for developing a systematic procedure to island the remaining system.
