At my Google Drive site, I posted "", a data set to simulate a Type 4 wind plant with PSSe v.33 (or v.34). The RE Wind plant simulation demo models a 100 MW Type 4 Wind plant, using model REGCAU1 family of models

A Guideline to model renewable plant, by WECC, with Wind model parameter data can be found at:

This set-up can be easily updated to model Type 3 wind or Solar PV, by changing the RExx models.

A similar data set "" is for modeling Solar PV using model PVGU1.

I want to simulate dynamic power system response when having wind speed step change (ex: range of wind with 15 m/s at (0-5) s, 0 m/s at (5-10) s and 15 m/s at (10-20) s. Can you help me how to simulate in PSSE 33 with model dynamic? I'm looking forward to your help.

I simulate Bess Model . Message from PSSE " BUS 3018 [CATDOG_G 13.800] MC 1 USER DEFINED MACHINE MODEL "REECCU1" NOT ACCESSIBLE" . Share me how to fix it. I think need load .dll, but i dont know how to create it?@jconto gravatar ( 2021-11-21 08:24:04 -0500 )edit

Add model REECCU1 to the dyr file for the BESS machine.

i use a sample file in your google drive " savnw_RE_battery" . I saw REECCU1 in this file. But when simulation show " Message from PSSE " BUS 3018 [CATDOG_G 13.800] MC 1 USER DEFINED MACHINE MODEL "REECCU1" NOT ACCESSIBLE" gravatar ( 2021-11-22 20:32:45 -0500 )edit

In the demo set "savnw_RE_battery" the REECCU1 model is assigned to machine 2 at bus 3018. The script "" runs fine inside the PSSE GUI (v.33 & v.34, using python 2.7). In your test, it was assigned to machine 1. Also, a BEES machine has to be declared "a wind machine" in the load flow.

Hello, thank you very much for sharing. I want to ask, in "" is there virtual inertia or not?

Not a virtual inertia machine. PVGU1 is a simple inverted type generator based on a WT4 model, with no features for frequency response.

Hello, thank you very much for sharing, i want to ask, when i running simulation IEEE39_RE, there are some notification, networked not converged at specific time, but when i check all the parameter based on WECC, value of parameter still same, do you guys have some problem?

"networked not converged" messages appears during the duration of a fault and maybe for a short period post-fault. Other than that, such messages may indicate the model(s) in use are misbehaving or the network is close to collapse.

Hello! Dear Professor, I download your nordic44 test system. I read the paper , I would like to know what version of your Nordic44 test system is. If you do not mind, can you give me some references about it. I guess your version is NTNU ? Thank you very much!

The IEEE39+RE_jconto data set is for PSSe v.33. I have saved the case with REs (produced by the script MAKECNVSNP_RE.PY) to "ieee39_RE.sav", which can be loaded into v.34 as well.

I am sorry , I see your update IEEE_39 re ,Thank you very much ! you are really a gentle and generous man !

Do you have an example for lvrt/hvrt/frt for solar systems?

Check for post "PV and WTG Step Change" and download the tool DMView.
