Abstract

Identifying generator coherency with respect to slow oscillatory modes has numerous power system use cases including dynamic model reduction, dynamic security analysis, or system integrity protection schemes (e.g., power system islanding). Despite their popularity in both research and industry, classic eigenvector-based slow coherency techniques may not always return accurate results. The multiple past endeavors to improve their accuracy often lack a solid mathematical foundation. Motivated by these deficiencies, we propose an alternative consistent approach to generator slow coherency. Firstly, a new approach is introduced to accurately detect slow coherent generators by effectively minimizing generic normalized cuts. As a by-product, the new approach can also guide the choice of the number of slow coherent groups. Secondly, it is shown that the combination of the the proposed slow coherency approach and an enhanced version of the inertial generator aggregation method allows to produce accurate dynamic equivalents even if the selected number of generator groups is relatively low.
