Are there any models in PSSE which can model nuclear generators?

I am trying to simulate power system dynamics with baseline nuclear and conventional generation, in response to events like faults and device outages. The nuclear model does not have to be very detailed, just the overall response of the generator to voltage and frequency deviations should represent how a nuclear plant would behave.

Any references are highly appreciated.

Since the steam source is not modeled in PSSE, use typical steam turbine/governor models. If your unit is a cross compound type it will be a little trickier, and you’ll need to research or post this question separately. If your unit runs with no governor or a valves-wide-open mode, then you may remove the governor model in some cases.
