The concept of integral manifolds is used to systematically create improved reduced order models of synchronous machines. The approach is illustrated through a detailed example of a single machine connected to an infinite bus. The example shows the advantages of the manifold approach and also clarifies several issues about reduced order models of synchronous machines. The basic objective of the method is to include the effects of more complex models without actually including the additional differential equations. This is illustrated by including the effects of stator transients and damper windings on the swing equation without including the differential equations.
