Abstract. In this Paper a comprehensive analysis of the Jordanian Power Grid (JPG)’s stability under various practical scenarios, including load disturbances and the integration of Renewable Energy Sources (RES). A key focus of the study is the impact of RES on the stability of the JPG, especially during unexpected disturbances. The findings reveal a notable trend: higher RES integration tends to decrease the grid’s stability under certain conditions. Additionally, the report explores the effects of interconnecting the JPG with neighboring countries, such as Egypt. This connection is shown to potentially enhance the JPG’s stability, both with and without the involvement of RES. The report delves into numerous cases, providing detailed discussions and insights. The conclusions drawn emphasize the critical importance of carefully managing the proportion of RES in the JPG to maintain its stability against various disturbances. This study offers valuable recommendations for future strategies to ensure the robustness and reliability of the Jordanian Power Grid in the face of evolving energy landscapes.
