  • Island Power Systems

    By Lukas Sigrist, Enrique Lobato, Francisco M. Echavarren, Ignacio Egido, Luis Rouco

    A major concern of island power systems is frequency stability. A power system is said to be frequency stable if its generators are able to supply their loads at a frequency within acceptable limits after a disturbance. Frequency instability occurs if load-generation imbalances are not corrected in…
