Abstract

This paper addresses the positive sequence modeling of converter-based sources in commercial transient stability analysis software. A simple and computationally economical model of the converter has been developed while ensuring a reliable representation of the detailed converter behavior. This model has been implemented as a user defined model in commercial positive sequence software such as PSLF. The behavior of the proposed model in positive sequence has the same form as the behavior obtained from detailed point on wave simulation. Tests have been carried out on a three-generator nine-bus equivalent system and the 18,205 bus Western Electricity Coordinating Council system to assess the impact and performance of the converters. The behavior of these converter interfaced generation sources for various system contingencies has been investigated.
