How to Convert synchronous generators into asynchronous generators?

I am trying to convert a synchronous generators into an asynchronous generators to simulate the presence of a renewable energy plant which can control frecuency stability. To do so, I have to do this:

  1. Transform GENERATOR into a LOAD where PLoad = -PGEN and QLoad = -QGEN.

Does anyone how could I do it? I just want to simulate the effect of the presence of solar/wind energy generators in the frecuency stability for a simulation. I would like to do it with a script if its possible.

Thank you very much

Looking forward to hearing your answers!

Use GNET to convert the generator at bus ibus to a load:

Thank you so much for your answer. Just to clarify..Doing so you are converting a synchronous generator into a asynchronous that doesn't interfere in the dynamics of the response? Kind of a renewable source I mean. Is it what GNET does?

I see that after executing the code, the IPLOAD is -PGEN which is great but IQLOAD = 0. is it correct?

GNET is just taking the plant out of service and replacing it with a negative load. It has nothing to do with renewables. The new load is constant load. It seems you have converted the active load to 100 constant current. What about reactive load? Is is converted to constant impedance (YQload)?

This is the response I get in PSSE. I attached to a Google Drive link since I can't post screen captures here directly. LINK: is it fine that PLOAD and QLOAD are zero whereas IPLOAD is approximately -PGEN and IQLOAD = 0?

YQload is 173.9142 Mvar at 1 pu voltage! You have already converted Qload to 100% constant impedance load.

To simulat a frequency stability (assume it is only for frequency decay), modeling the renewables as negative loads is OK. Also when you convert the load to ZIP model, use the constant power model so the output is not affected by the voltage change. Also don’t apply frequency dependency on it to make sure its output does not affected by frequency too.
