Title: U.S. Eastern Interconnection (EI) Electromechanical Wave Propagation and the Impact of High PV Penetration on its Speed

Abstract

A power system electromechanical wave propagates from the disturbance location to the rest of system, influencing various types of protections. In addition, since more power-electronics-interfaced generation and energy storage devices are being integrated into power systems, electromechanical wave propagation speeds in the future power systems are likely to change accordingly. In this paper, GPS-synchronized measurement data from a wide-area synchrophasor measurement system FNET/GridEye are used to analyze the characteristics of electromechanical wave propagation in the U.S. Eastern Interconnection (EI) system. Afterwards, high levels of photovoltaic (PV) penetration are modeled in the EI to investigate the influences of a typical power-electronics--interfaced resource on the electromechanical wave propagation speed.
