Abstract:This thesis addresses the verification, or model-to-model comparison, of the four existing generic dynamic wind turbine models in three different commercial transient stability packages. It is known that transient stability results can, and do, differ across simulation platforms, and this work illustrates further this fact with special emphasis on generic wind turbine models. Two simulation approaches are considered for comparison of results as part of this work: three-phase bus faults with single machine infinite bus systems and two-bus frequency disturbance injections. This thesis is organized as follows: Chapter 1 provides the reader an introduction to wind turbine generic models, as well as details about each of the four model types; Chapter 2 outlines in detail the verification procedures developed and executed for this work, as well as the approach for building appropriate simulation cases for such comparisons; Chapter 3 provides results of the verification procedures with comparisons of machine terminal voltage and real and reactive power output for each model type; Chapter 4 summarizes the work performed in this thesis and outlines future work to extend the concepts presented.
