A cost effective, low maintenance generator brake is proposed using developments in thick film, metal oxide resistors. The brake has very low resistance, and virtually no inductance, allowing its use during a fault to slow a generator's acceleration. Simulation results using the 39 bus New England system show that placing brakes at each machine dramatically increases the global stability of a power system
