Voltage Stability, “the ability to maintain steady voltages at all buses after being subjected to a disturbance”, is essential to the reliability of bulk electric power systems.
Control center operators need to know the limits (in real time) under which the system will perform reliably, especially under these changing conditions. Increased loads and renewable energy will put more and more stress on transmission systems, leading to potential voltage instability.
BSI Voltage Stability Analysis and Enhancement (VSA&E) is a comprehensive software application and BSI’s flagship product used by electric utilities since 2003 to:
In addition to real time, BSI VSA&E can operate in future time horizons, determining limits and system conditions for the next 30 minutes…to the next 24 hours...to the next 7 days ahead.
