Renewable Device Modeling and Harmonic Model Derivation using PSCAD/EMTDC (October 19, 2017)
A webinar on Renewable Device Modeling and Harmonic Model Derivation using PSCAD/EMTDC was presented on October 19, 2017.
The materials from the webinar are available from the links below.
The example files are currently set up for use with the Intel Fortran compiler.
Alternatively, the GFortran 4.6 compiler may be used. To use GFortran, link the included GFortran object files into the simulation. Please see the article on linking for more details.
Here is the abstract for this webinar:
In this webinar, we focus on key elements of modeling renewables plants such as wind and PV solar farms.
First a method for aggregating the collector network of the farm is presented. This is important to help to reduce the computational time while maintaining essential frequency profile characteristics. Further, a current scaling element is introduced to bring the equivalent plant to full power.
Secondly, once the plant is made equivalent, a method is introduced that allows to obtain the ‘dynamic impedance’ of the converters. Knowing the dynamic impedance is important when screening for potential sub-synchronous control interactions (SSCI) with the rest of the grid.
