Using a simple test example, this paper demonstrates that a weakly damped eigen-oscillation of an electric power system can lead to a loss of stability in the presence of its resonance with forcing oscillation. Such resonant interactions can risk the power system security, as confirmed by recent events in the Western American and Nordic power systems. Conventional eigenvalue analysis cannot detect the observed instability due to its non-linear nature. We show that the critical condition for the appearance of this type of instability can be the value of the perturbation energy accumulated in the system over time. To quantify the risk of stability loss, we examine the model of forcing oscillations and the resonance response of power system in a linear approximation and compare it with the simulation results for the two-area Kundur test system.
Key words: resonant modal interactions / forcing oscillations / power system / small-signal stability / inter-area oscillations.
