Voltage Drop after inserting a wind turbine

Hello, i am currently working in IEEE14 bus system and i added a wind turbine in order to study the transient stability. I inserted the wind turbine WT3G2 model and when i do a simulation i see the voltage of the wind turbine starting from 0.4 pu instead of 1 pu that it should have. Does anyone know why and what should i do?

Check the post "Renewable Plant Modeling - Solar PV - Wind". Example uses SAVNW case with type-4 wind plant.

The WT3G2 has been deemed obsolete and replace by the renewable models, 2nd generation (modeling using REGCAU1 family of models).

I did like you said but i have a new problem. When i do a simply dynamix simulation the voltage in wind turbine is not stable and the voltage in other buses rise a little and then become stable .These are my files. (

I did run a no-disturbance run, with no issues (v.33). Use a script file to perform a simulation run and do not forget to convert the loads. Post the script file you use.

Mr Conto i found what the problem was. When i did power flow->solve it sai that Pgen was minus. After decreasing the wt from 100MW to 50MW, in the no-disturbance run everything is stable. Thank you for everything

Mr Conto, i run a dynamic simulation for the power system with an unbalanced fault. The system always stabilizes after the fault , even if the fault duration is over 5 sec. Is it normal? Shouldn't it have not after a big fault duration?

Check this forum for "unbalance fault". Unbalanced faults are simulated with three-phase faults in dynamic runs. Post your fault definition code.
