In this paper, a fast contingency screening algorithm using SIME for the transient stability monitoring of the KEPCO system is implemented. This method evaluates the first-swing stability of a large number of contingencies in a short time with reliable accuracy. The salient feature of the proposed screening algorithm is as follows. First, critical cluster of generators is identified by a new index in the early stage of the time domain simulation. Thus, the computational time required for finding the equivalent one machine infinite bus system can be reduced significantly. Second, clustering critical machines can perform even in very stable cases. It allows us to avoid extra calculation of the time trajectory that is needed in the SIME for classifying the stable cases. Third, the screening capability is improved using the power-angle trajectory and subdividing the contingency classification.
