Sandia finalized and submitted the updated “WECC Wind Power Plant Dynamic Modeling Guide” and the “WECC PV Power Plant Dynamic Modeling Guide” to the Technical Studies Subcommittee at the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC).
These dynamic modeling guides present the second-generation generic models as specified in the January 23, 2014 WECC report.
The WECC generic models were designed for large transmission planning studies that involve a large network and a large set of generators, loads, and other dynamic components. The objective is to assess dynamic performance of the system, particularly recovery dynamics, following grid-side disturbances such as transmission-level faults.
The development of the second generation of generic models is the result of large industry collaboration.
