The WECC Modeling and Validation Work Group was established by the Modeling Subcommittee under the Reliability Assessment Committee. MVWG review dynamic models and evolving power system equipment in the stability programs. Design and document new models. Specify validation testing criteria and procedures. Validate model implementation in the stability programs. Develop documentation, user guides, and data preparation tools for new models. Explore, evaluate, and recommend new system modeling techniques. Validate system modeling and performance with real system events.This talk will introduce the recent MVWG’s activities, including load model, renewable model, power plant model, HVDC line model and relay model development.
