This paper focuses on no-load stability during startup-grid integration process. First, no-load operating dynamic character under startup-grid integration process is studied by bifurcation diagram, based on a classical pumped storage plant model. Second, the no-load stability of pump turbine was analyzed by introducing step disturbance and slopes. Finally, the results indicate that the no-load operating point is easy to be disturbed and some factors, such as different disturbance intensity and slopes, have different influence on no-load stability. These methods and results will supply theoretical basis for operating the pumped storage plant steadily.
