Abstract: A test method is developed to measure the equivalent (driving point) positive sequence impedance, as a function of frequency, of an operating power system. The technique used is to apply a phase-to-phase fault at the system node of interest and record the transient voltage across and current in the fault. These quantities are then transformed into the frequency domain. The system driving point impedance is then taken as the ratio of the fault voltage to the current at each point in the frequency domain. Field results from a phase-to-phase fault at a central location on the B.C. Hydro 500 k-V network are presented and analysed to determine the system driving point impedance. The measured impedance versus frequency characteristic is compared with a predicted impedance characteristic based on an Electro-Magnetic Transient program study of a detailed model of the major B.C. Hydro transmission and generation. Correlation between the measured and calculated impedance is good, with explanations offered for any localized significant disagreement. The explanations offered are subsequently verified by Ontario Hydro's improvements to the analysis of the test data and additions to the computer model data.
