The paper describes a mathematical model for the simulation of a 3-phase synchronous machine using
direct-phase quantities, thus obviating the need for any transformation. Numerical solution using a digital
computer has also been described, and compared with digital simulation in transformed d-q-O- and
a-/3-0-axes models of a synchronous machine. The proposed model in direct-phase quantities enables a
unified approach to be adopted in the study of both symmetrical and asymmetrical conditions. Since the
constraints to be imposed are direct operating conditions, asymmetrical operating conditions can be studied
very easily. Modifications required in the model to simulate various types of faults are described. Versatility
of the proposed model is illustrated by the study of a single-line-earth fault with single-phase opening and
automatic reclosure. It is shown that this type of fault can be studied as simply as, say, a 3-phase fault.

3-phase model.


4.5 Open conductor

When circuits are controlled by fuses or a device that
does not open all three phases simultaneously, one or two
phases of the circuit may open on a fault while other phases
are still closed. A similar situation is likely to occur with a
broken conductor.
Neglecting the resistance of the arc which forms at the
time of opening, this type of fault can be studied by assuming -8

that the opening takes place at the instant when the current

zero just after the fault. Thus at the instant when, say, phase Variation of torque for a 3-phase fault
a is open and thereafter, ia — 0. Just after the occurrence
of the fault, pia = 0. IO2r
The modified matrices are obtained by deleting the row and
column corresponding to phase a. The rest of the procedure
for computing the variables remains the same. The open-phase
machine voltage ea, which is the voltage induced by the mutual
fluxes, is computed at every step, making use of the mutual
inductances of phase a with other circuits, currents in other
circuits, and their derivatives.

Arc resistance can be taken into account by modifying the

5 Model verification and results
5.1 System studied
A simple system containing a synchronous machine
feeding into an infinite busbar through a short transmission
line has been studied (see Fig. 2). Details of the machine
and the system are given in Appendix 9.6.
Various faults applied at the terminals of the synchronous
machine have been studied. Variation of speed was taken
into account in each study. The generator currents, transient
torque and speed variation were computed in all cases.
5.2 Comparison of the three models
5.2.1 System output
To verify the reliability of the 3-phase model, a sample
study of a symmetrical 3-phase-earth fault at the machine
terminals was made using the three detailed models described
in Section 2 and Appendix 9. Results obtained from all the
three models were in full agreement.
Figs. 4 and 5 show the plots of short-circuit torque and
speed variation with time. The mechanical input is assumed
to be constant during the fault. It will be observed from
Fig. 5 that there is a drop in speed immediately after the
fault, owing to transient torques developed by the interaction
of the fluxes and currents. Later, the speed increases as the
fault current decays. The consequence of this is a temporary 0-32
drop in load angle, referred to as 'back swing'. This result is
in agreement with that obtained in References 11 and 12.

operating conditions, the resulting equations require further
