Abstract

Traditionally, transmission and distribution system dynamic simulations are performed independently. However, dynamic co-simulation of transmission-distribution systems can be beneficial in analyzing distribution systems with high penetration of distributed renewable resources. The authors describe a framework for conducting transmission-distribution dynamic co-simulation (TDDS). A model of a real network including detailed models of solar photovoltaic units in the distribution system is constructed. The initial operating point of the network is validated against field measurements. The TDDS tool is used to simulate a single line-to-ground fault on the distribution system, highlighting the need for conducting transmission-distribution co-simulations.
