Measurement-based real-time voltage stability assessment methods typically use a Thévenin Equivalent (TE) model. The TE is computed under the assumption that all generators and loads seen from an individual load-bus are constant during the time-window when measurements are obtained. This assumption does not hold in actual power systems. In fact, load changes at other load-buses result in variations on the voltage of a single-port equivalent model of the power system as seen from a load-bus. To consider these variations, this paper uses an interpolation method to develop a dynamic TE model from synchrophasor measurements, which is suitable for measurement-based real-time voltage stability assessment. In addition, a reduced network model is proposed to separate and quantify the impact of other loads and generators on the voltage stability of an interested load-bus in networks without full observability. The proposed method has been assessed through various simulation scenarios, and illustrated using actual field measurements.
