"Models for the governor and exciter control systems are presented and the development of a hybrid computing system including these models is described. A technique for including the governor and exciter effects into the solution of the power system swing equation is also discussed. A hybrid computing system consisting of an SCC 650 digital computer, hybrid interface, and an EAI-TR-48 analog computer is used to study five test cases. The test cases involve basically the same example system with different values for fault clearing times and machine inertias. The results of each test case are briefly discussed with relevance to the importance of the inclusion of the control system effects. The advantages and disadvantages of a hybrid computing system are also discussed" – Abstract, leaf ii.
