Sub-synchronous resonance (SSR) studies are typically completed for transmission systems with series-compensated overhead lines near generating plant. The series-connected capacitors can interact with generator mechanical systems, exciting torsional vibration modes and potentially causing severe damage to the turbine-generator shaft system.
If issues are identified, MPE's SSR specialists are able to design mitigation measures to prevent damage to equipment.
