In this paper, a new hybrid intelligent system is proposed for transient stability prediction. This intelligent system is composed of a preprocessor, an array of neural networks (NN) and an interpreter. The preprocessor partitions the whole set of synchronous machines into subsets, each one including only two generators. Each subset is assigned to one NN, which extracts the input/ output mapping function of that subset. Then, the interpreter combines the responses of the NNs in a voting procedure to determine the transient stability status of the power system. This mechanism can cover the probable errors of the NNs, increasing the accuracy of the final response of the hybrid intelligent system. In addition to the transient stability status, this intelligent system can determine tripped generators and islanded parts of the power system for unstable cases. The proposed method has been examined on the PSB4 and New England test systems. The obtained results indicate the efficiency of the hybrid intelligent system for transient stability prediction.
