The Excitation System block is a Simulink® system implementing a DC exciter described in , without the exciter's saturation function. The basic elements that form the Excitation System block are the voltage regulator and the exciter.
The exciter is represented by the following transfer function between the exciter voltage Vfd and the regulator's output ef:
The time constant Tr, in seconds (s), of the first-order system that represents the
stator terminal voltage transducer. Default is
The gain Ka and time constant Ta, in seconds (s), of the first-order system
representing the main regulator. Default is
[ 300, 0.001 ].
The gain Ke and time constant Te, in seconds (s), of the first-order system
representing the exciter. Default is
[ 1, 0 ].
The time constants Tb, in seconds (s), and Tc, in seconds (s), of the
first-order system representing a lead-lag compensator. Default is
[ 0, 0
The gain Kf and time constant Tf, in seconds (s), of the first-order system
representing a derivative feedback. Default is
[ 0.001, 0.1 ].
Limits Efmin and Efmax are imposed on the output of the voltage regulator. The upper
limit can be constant and equal to Efmax, or variable and equal to the rectified stator
terminal voltage Vtf times a proportional gain Kp. If Kp is set to
former applies. If Kp is set to a positive value, the latter applies. Default is
-11.5, 11.5, 0 ].
The initial values of terminal voltage Vt0 (pu) and field voltage Vf0 (pu). When set
correctly, they allow you to start the simulation in steady state. Initial terminal voltage
should normally be set to 1 pu. Both Vt0 and Vf0 values are automatically updated by the load
flow utility of the Powergui block. Default is
See the Hydraulic Turbine and Governor block.
The desired value, in pu, of the stator terminal voltage.
vd component, in pu, of the terminal voltage.
vq component, in pu, of the terminal voltage.
Connect this input to a power system stabilizer to provide additional stabilization of power system oscillations.
