Power system stability is defined by the tendency of the energy system to develop recovery forces equal or greater than the disturbing forces to maintain a stable equilibrium state. In general, power system stability problems are usually divided into two parts, steady state and transient state. An extension of steady-state stability is dynamic stability. Transient stability deals with the effects of large disturbances such as malfunctions, sudden line interruptions, and sudden application or load removal. This research is presents load angle method to transient stability problem for multi-machine system. The ETAP program is used to simulate the above method to study transient stability. A sub-station plant in Khartoum (GARRI) with four generation sections (1, 2 and 4) has been taken as a case study. The simulation result shows that when a single line-ground fault occurs at main busbar and cleared at time t = 0.4 sec the system is stable, in case 2, when the same fault cleared at t = 3 sec the system become unstable.
