The speed of simulation of power system dynamics has been one of the topics most concerned with on-line security assessment. This paper proposes a new method for forming the constant Jacobian matrix for enhancing the speed of system simulation. By using the constant Jacobian matrix approach in system simulations, both for post-fault and fault-on duration, simulation efficiency is greatly enhanced. Techniques for speeding up the constant Jacobian matrix approach are discussed. Theoretical analysis is presented to demonstrate how the constant Jacobian matrix approach can be extended to a power system with generator controls. Simulation results with the constant Jacobian matrix approach in the 10-generator New England test system and the North China power system are compared with the results obtained by the use of commercial software BPA.
