Transient Stability Assessment of Networked Microgrids Using Neural Lyapunov Methods

Tong Huang, Sicun Gao, Le Xie

This paper proposes a novel transient stability assessment tool for networked microgrids based on neural Lyapunov methods. Assessing transient stability is formulated as a problem of estimating the dynamic security region of networked microgrids. We leverage neural networks to learn a local Lyapunov function in the state space. The largest security region is estimated based on the learned neural Lyapunov function, and it is used for characterizing disturbances that the networked microgrids can tolerate. The proposed method is tested and validated in a grid-connected microgrid, three networked microgrids with mixed interface dynamics, and the IEEE 123-node feeder. Case studies suggest that the proposed method can address networked microgrids with heterogeneous interface dynamics, and in comparison with conventional methods that are based on quadratic Lyapunov functions, can characterize the security regions with much less conservativeness.
