Title: Study of interconnected power systems operation at below normal frequency. Final report

Abstract

This EPRI-sponsored study, prompted by the expressed interest of the North American Power System Interconnection Committee (NAPSIC), addresses the problems of a sufficient generating capacity loss on any large interconnected power system. Unavoidably associated with any such generating capacity deficiency is a corresponding reduction in system operating frequency. Unlike severe, but short-lived deficiencies for which automatic load-shedding strategies have already been developed, there is no comparable strategy for dealing with small but long-lasting generation shortages. One of the principal concerns of this study is to determine the range of tolerable frequency deviation for the affected interconnected system. Also included are suggested operating strategies for maintaining a tolerable frequency within narrow limits.
