An efficient and flexible simulation tool, with which a large variety of network - machine - excitation system interaction problems can be studied, is presented. The synchronous machine model developed, while possessing a large degree of generality, has been designed to be easy to use requiring only the standard data normally provided by manufacturers as input. The application of the program to investigate the subsynchronous resonance phenomenon in a realistic-sized system is given. Other typical applications include transmission line reclosure, independent pole switching, load rejection or unit tripping, loss of synchronism and multi-machine interaction problems. The model and program have undergone extensive testing by several utilities. The results obtained compare favorably with field experience and results of digital and analog programs of similar capability. The program, incorporating the newly developed TACS (Transient Analysis of Control Systems) feature, provides the utility engineer with a significant addition to computational capabilities.
