Correct Answer - Option 2 : using high speed governors on machines

Transient stability: Transient stability is the ability of the power system to maintain synchronism when subjected to a severe transient disturbance.

Transient stability of the system can be improved by

  • Increasing the system voltage
  • Increase in the X/R ratio
  • Using high-speed governors on machines
  • High-speed circuit breakers help to clear the fault as quickly as possible
  • By turbine fast valving
  • High-speed excitation
  • Use of auto re-closing breakers
  • Some of the other ways to improve the transient stability are by employing lightning arresters, high neutral grounding impedance, single pole switching, quick Automatic Voltage Regulators (AVRs).
