—A nonlinearly stabilized three-phase oscillator model is treated in the present work. It is shown analytically and demonstrated by a computer solution of the equations that the oscillator equations possess a relatively large region, where stability of solutions is assured. All trajectories initiating or reaching this region are proved to approach a limit cycle solution. The three variables x1, x2, and x3, representing the final stable solution versus time, vary in time in a way similar to that of the three voltages of a balanced three-phase power generating system in steady state. The analysis of the relatively complicated third-order nonlinear system is made possible by transforming the original three-phase variables x1 x2, and x3 to new variables (introduced by Daboul) S, M, and Φ The above oscillator has been applied earlier for the representation of power systems. The present thorough analysis of the model increases the authors' confidence that such representation of power systems is dependable.
