CO3: Developing User Models for Dynamic Simulation

From time to time it is necessary to develop user models for equipment which do not have representation in commercial software packages for stability assessments. Emerging technologies and new equipment are typical bases for user models. This course introduces the basis for dynamic models, the range of responses they are intended to simulate, and then goes right into the mechanics of developing your own dynamic model.

Learn about power system controls and how these can be translated into special user models that work with today’s commercial simulation software. Be able to write your own models, debug other’s models and modify an existing model to suite your analytical needs. This is an advanced applications course. It is recommended that participants have prior experience with dynamic simulations and software programming to gain the most benefit from attending this course.
