# Infinite Generator

I'm setting up a case representing an infinite generator. I assume modeling this dynamically is just as simple as having a large inertia and large damping coefficient for said generator?

Thanks

Use the classic model GENCLS, and no exciter,nor governor models. In the base case, give a large MVA to this machine and set its Xs = 0.01 or less.

I have done same .. On tripping one of generator ... Initially, my infinite generator is picking up the load, however, later , that additional load is being distributed on all of remaining generators and infinite generator is going back at its initial load... whereas, I want to have that infinite generator to keep serving that deficit..

I wanted to attach the Pelectrical images for your reference.. however, website is denying by saying to "not have Karma>10"...

What is the purpose of this Xsource = 0.01 ? What is the relation between the modeling Infinite Bus and the Xsorce parameter ?

jesus...is no one else running into this problem?!?!?

The short circuit power in MVA for the "infinite bus" is determined by Mbase/Zsorce. Select GENCLS with H=0 to make the generator infinitely heavy in the dynamics (infinite inertia and constant frequency)

I decided to post in here because my question is relevant: "How do I model an infinite bus?" To be more exact, I need to model many infinite buses so "How do I model a number of infinite buses in a case?" I am asking in both load flow network data and dynamic model terms.

- What bus type do they need to be? Generator buses or Swing buses?
- Voltage schedules need to be set to 1, right?
- H (inertia) and D (damping) in Dynamic Data have to be 0, both of them ?
- No controls, no governors, no nothing?
- Generator model is GENCLS, right?

Thanks jconto, the damping and inertia coefficients should be large though correct?

Yes, that is correct.
