Abstract [en]

The accuracy, ease of use, and execution time of the finite element method based software Maxwell coupled to the system simulation software Simplorer was evaluated for simulation of hydropower generator - power grid interaction. A generator test rig were modelled in Maxwell and coupled to Simplorer with a strong circuit coupling as a single machine infinite bus system. The accuracy of the model was measured by comparing the simulated output power oscillation frequency and damping characteristics to the measured ones after a torque step. The result shows that the difference in output power oscillation frequency between the model and the generator test rig was small, and that the difference in damping characteristics was significant. The usability of the software package was found to be fair, as were the execution times.
