1 Western Electricity Coordinating Council Renewable Energy Modeling Task Force Wind and Solar Modeling Update Contact: Abraham Ellis Salt Lake City, UT March 21, 2012 Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000.

2 WECC REMTF Charter The Renewable Energy Modeling Task Force shall
Develop and validate generic, non-proprietary, positive-sequence power flow and dynamic simulation models for solar (and wind) generation for use in bulk system studies Implement models in commercial simulation software Issue guidelines, model documentation Coordinate with stakeholders REMTF reports to the WECC Modeling & Validation Work Group (MVWG) Responsible for maintaining dynamic modeling in the Western Region, per NERC MOD standards

3 SOLAR MODELS Copper Mountain 48 MW PV plant in Nevada (Picture:

4 Solar (PV) Models Under Development
REMTF working on three models for PV plants PV Plants (full-featured and simple models) Distributed PV Model Purpose Status PV1X Large-scale PV plats Specification complete PVD1 Stand-alone model for plant or aggregated distributed PV Specification nearly complete CMPLDWg CMPLDW with DG for distributed PV Version 3 Options for PF representation under discussion

5 Large PV Plant Modeling
In power flow, PV modeled explicitly as generator Should include feeder or collector system equivalent per WECC guide In dynamics, use stand-alone PVD1 model or PV1X model PVD1 (stand alone) PV1X OR

6 PV1X Model Structure Identical structure as WT4 model

7 PV1X P/Q and Plant Control
Separate model for plant control, including power-frequency droop Simplify as indicated (items are WGT4-specific)

8 Generator/Converter Simplify as indicated (item is WGT4-specific)

9 PVD1 Model 3 1 2 Change input to vterm + (iterm)(xcomp)
Insert summation, + qref Insert summation, + p_var

10 Distributed PV Generation
In power flow, residential/commercial PV would be load-netted or represented explicitly (several options possible) In dynamics, represent with CMPLDWg model CMPLDWg = CMPLDW + DG Simple version of PVD1

11 PV Portion of CMPLDWg Simplified version of PVD1: No p_var, no volt/var control, no P/Q priority

13 Specification of DG Fraction
A1. In dynamic file only, as a fraction of load Best alternative short term A2. In dynamic file only, as an absolute MW value In power flow, as a negative load associated with existing load through special ID Could be confusing to users C. In power flow load record Would require changes to power flow programs Best solution long term CMPLDWg prototype to support A1 and A2 Consult with MVWG and SRWG on C (future)

32 Other REMTF Items to Address

33 Discussion About Plant-Level Model Validation

34 Why So Much Detail in EU Models
Driven by Grid Codes! For example, Latest Proposed ENTSO-E Grid Code, Article 32: Common Provisions on Compliance Simulations, Parts (3) & (4): 3. The Power Generating Facility Owner shall provide simulation results relevant to each and any individual Generating Unit within the Power Generating Facility in a report form in order to demonstrate the fulfillment of the requirements of this Network Code. The Power Generating Facility Owner shall produce and provide a validated simulation model for a Generating Unit. […] 4. The Relevant Network Operator shall have the right to check the compliance of a Generating Unit with the requirements of this Network Code by carrying out its own compliance simulations based on the provided simulation reports, simulation models and compliance test measurements. Reference:

35 Models for Interconnection Studies
Requirements are vague in comparison Applicable requirements: NERC FAC/TPL and FERC LGIP/SGIP IVGTF Task Force 1.1 recommended changes to MOD standards and also recommended that FAC-001 be reviewed and expanded to clearly cover modeling requirements for generator interconnection study process NERC Standard FAC requires evidence that assessments included steady-state, short circuit and dynamics studies as necessary to confirm compliance with NERC Standard TPL-001-0

36 NERC IGVTF Task 1.3 Report Reference: IVGTF Task 1.3 Report, Section 6: Models for Facility Connection, Page 91

37 NERC IGVTF Task 1.3 Recommendations
Specific recommendations to FAC shown in red: R2 The Transmission Owner’s facility connection requirements shall address, but are not limited to, the following items: […] [Add] R Generation facility modeling data, including appropriate power flow, short circuit and dynamic models, and verification requirements. [add appendix to clarify]

38 NERC IGVTF Task 1.3 Report Proposed Appendix to FAC about models: Preliminary or approximate power flow and dynamic models may be adequate for the preliminary assessment of interconnection impacts, or to represent existing and proposed projects that are not in the immediate electrical vicinity of the Facility being studied. However, detailed dynamic (and possibly transient) models for the specific equipment may be needed for the System Impact Study and Facilities Study, to represent the Facility and other equipment in the electrical vicinity. Generic non-proprietary publicly available models are more appropriate for the NERC model building process covered by existing MOD standards, although validated generic models with specifically tuned parameters may be adequate for interconnection studies. The models for interconnection studies must be acceptable to the TO in terms of simulation platform, usability, documentation & performance.

39 IVGTF 1.3 Proposed Modeling Grid Code
Preliminary model data may be used for the initial feasibility study of a variable generator interconnection project The best model available shall be used for the final SIS or FS. These models can be user written and require non-disclosure agreements The detailed dynamic model must be accurate over the frequency range of 0.1 to 5 Hz. Time constants in the model should not be less than 5 ms Detailed dynamic models must be validated against a physical or type test. Verification of detailed model performance should be confirmed during commissioning to the extent possible. The following tests shall be performed: Primary/secondary voltage control Low voltage and high voltage ride through Power factor/reactive power capability Power ramping and power curtailment Verification of the non-propriety model accuracy may be performed by simulation tests compared with the detailed model performance. At the end of the commissioning tests, the Generator Owner shall provide a verified detailed model and a non-proprietary model, ideally in IEEE, IEC or other approved format, for ongoing regional studies such as TPL-001.
