This paper presents a transient stability preventive control technique based on a hybrid method. In order to maintain the power system security it is evaluated the generators output power that should be shift from the most unstable synchronous machines to the undisturbed units. The reallocation of the generators output power is carried out using an optimal power flow program. The hybrid method is a very important tool for the transient stability analysis, since it allows a fast evaluation of the stability limits and margins. This approach can also easily accommodate detailed models of the network devices and protective schemes. In order to validate the established mathematical models it was studied the transient stability of the New England test power network. The results obtained with the proposed methodology were compared with the solutions produced by another numerical formulation, showing a very close agreement.
