Large increases in the complexity of shipboard electric loads as well as development of electric drive, integrated electric drive and pulsed power systems make manifest the present and future importance of naval electric power systems. The most crucial attribute of these systems is their ability to fulfill their function in the presence of "large-signal" perturbations. Fundamental differences between shipboard and commercial electric power systems make all but the most general nonlinear, "large-signal" stability analyses inappropriate for the design and assessment of naval electric power systems. The tightly coupled and compact nature of shipboard systems are best accommodated by composite system stability analyses. Composite system methods, based upon Lyapunov's direct method, require that each component's stability be represented by a Lyapunov function. A new Lyapunov function which is based upon coenergy is developed for 3-phase synchronous machines. This use of coenergy is generalizable to all electromechanical energy conversion devices. The coenergy-based Lyapunov function is implemented as a "stability organ" which generates waveforms at information teirninals of a "device object" in the object oriented simulation environment of WAVESIM. Single generator simulation results are used to acquire a measure of the "over sufficiency" of the coenergy-based Lyapunov function. Some means of combining the components' Lyapunov functions is necessary with composite system stability criterions. To provide the largest stability region in a Lyapunov function convective derivative space, thereby reducing "over sufficiency", a "timevariant weighted-sum" composite system criterion is developed. This criterion is implemented as a "stability demon" "device object" within the WAVESIM environment. The "stability demon" is tested through RLC circuit simulations and a two-generator simulation. The output of the "stability demon" is suitable for use within an overall system stabilising controller.
