The two-area system used is example 12.6 at page 813 in the textbook "Power System Stability and Control", written by Prabha Kundur [1].

The basic topology is depicted in Figure 1.

                                     Figure 1. Single line diagram of of Kundur's Two-Area System

The system contains eleven buses and two areas, connected by a weak tie between bus 7 and 9.

Totally two loads are applied to the system at bus 7 and 9.

Two shunt capacitors are also connected to bus 7 and 9 as shown in the Figure 1.

The system has the fundamental frequency 60 Hz.

It is recommended to run the training cases and read the textbook in parallel since the training follows pages 813 - 816.

The system comprises two similar areas connected by a weak tie.

Each area consists of two generators, each having a rating of 900 MVA and 20 kV..
