This guide includes criteria, definitions, and test objectives for evaluating the dynamic performance of excitation control systems as applied by electric utilities. The primary purpose of this guide is to provide a basis for evaluating closed-loop performance of excitation control systems for both large and small signal disturbances; confirming the adequacy of mathematical models of excitation control systems for use in analytical studies of power systems; identifying objectives for tests of excitation control systems and their components; and preparing excitation system specifications and additional standards. Portions of this guide will also serve as educational material for people who are becoming acquainted with excitation control systems.
