The status of the transient energy function (TEF) method of direct analysis of transient stability of power systems is reviewed. The mathematical model is presented; an elementary theoretical basis of the method is introduced; the procedure for using the method in assessing power system transient stability is outlined; and the present condition of the technique and the available computer program is given. The outstanding issues, current development work and new applications are then summarized.
