1Adding GE WTG Models to WECC Approved Dynamic Model Library WECC MVWG MeetingJune 2014Eric Bakie
2Agenda Review of GE WTG models in WECC MDF and WECC Cases Discussion of Adding GE WTG models to WECC Approved Model Library

4Questions Asked Why are GE WTG Models not on the Approved Model List? How many GE WTG records are already in the WECC MDF?How many records represent GE Wind Turbines?How many records represent non-GE Wind Turbines?How many records represent solar projects?Can the GE WTG models be added to the Approved Model List?
5Criteria for Adding Models to WECC Approved Model List Model documented and testedModel available in all three programsJustification that the model is needed
6GE WTG Model Benchmarking Documentation Images: GE Energy
7GE WTG Model StatusGE WTG Models have been implemented in all three programsGE PSLFPSS/EPowerWorldGE has indicated that their preference would be to represent GE WTGs with the dynamic models GE developed

9More Detailed Review of WECC MDF GE WTG Records UnidentifiableGeneration Typegewtg model onlyEst.SolarType 3Type 4483244424575V/690V(GE1.5/1.6/2.5)<575V/690V>690V>100kV(BES)3242527Review suggests that approximately 50 of 133 records are most likely being used to represent Type 3 and Type 4 WTGs
10Discussion TopicsAdding GE WTG models could potentially reduce the need to convert about 50 recordsDoes this justify adding the GE WTG models?Could create the possibility of records not getting reviewed and updatedIncreases difficulty of tracking Phase 2 implementationNot adding the models provides opportunity to start fresh by replacing all wind/solar model records with the new Phase 2 Generic Wind/Solar ModelsImproves the chance of developing better modeling representationEasier to track Phase 2 implementation
11Modeling of GE Wind Turbine-Generators for Grid Studies Guide Can a revised GE guide be published that also includes using the Phase 2 Generic Wind Models for modeling GE Wind Turbines with recommended modeling data?
12MotionAdd GE WTG models to the WECC Approved model library for use to represent GE Wind Turbines OnlyType 3 (DFAG - GE 1.5MW, 1.6MW, 3.6MW)Type 4 (Full Converter - GE Multi-Megawatt 2.5 MW)
