This paper shows the effect on the frequency stability and response of an electric power system of the use of steam-turbine reheat. It is shown that in general reheat tends to decrease the damping of the frequency variations of the system as a whole, to increase the damping of tie-line power oscillations, and to increase the maximum frequency deviation occasioned by an abrupt load change. The system responses were determined by means of an analog computer.
