Hydropower has played an important role in the safe, stable and efficient operation of electric power systems for a long time. Hydropower not only generates electricity as the largest global renewable source, but also shoulders a large portion of the regulation and balancing duty in many power systems all over the world. In this chapter, power system stability and features of hydropower generating systems are briefly introduced; the related previous research and the hydropower research at Uppsala University is reviewed; then the scope and outline of this thesis are presented.
