I*SIM - Transient Stability Analysis
PTW I*SIM is a program for transient stability analysis. It is designed to simulate system response during and after transient disturbances such as faults, load changes, switching, motor starting, loss of utility, loss of generation, loss of excitation, and blocked governor events. I*SIM is designed to study today’s most challenging simulation problems in one convenient and easy-to-use program.
- 1. Simulate complicated disturbances and system responses to design safer and more reliable power systems.
- 2. Save time with all IEEE standard exciter, turbine governor and PSS models built-in.
- 3. Increase flexibility with a powerful graphical builder for user-defined controllers.
- 4. Save time by running multiple case scenarios from a single action.
- 5. Communicate designs more easily with professional reports and graphs.
- 6. Evaluate alternatives quickly and easily to establish an optimal design.
- Graphical interface for system design, model selection and study results.
- Stores multiple study scenarios with dynamic events and outputs graphics for each project.
- Expanding tree structure to manage study scenarios.
- Copy, paste and rename study scenarios to compare alternative designs.
- Run multiple study scenarios as a single action.
- Compare results from multiple scenarios on the same graph.
- Plot phase and sequence voltage and current, speed, frequency, real and reactive power, rotor angle, voltage angle, torque, Efd, Ifd, Ed”, Ed’, Eq”, Eq’, and more.
