The increase of non-synchronous generation sources on a power network are changing the system dynamics and this can lead to problems with stability. One of the contributions to the change in system dynamics is the variation in system inertia. By approximating a traditional stability metric, the critical clearing time (CCT) in an energetic framework we conduct a parametric investigation of the effect of inertia on power system stability. A set of solid three phase to ground faults are considered on a small but not trivial power system, the two-machine infinite bus network. The performance of the approximated CCT is compared to the true CCT.
