User-defined actions may be added to simulate wind turbine and grid transient recovery variations and relay operations. It also predicts the dynamic response of each individual wind turbine generator.
Wind Turbine Generator models fully integrated with all ETAP calculation modules such as Load Flow, Short circuit, Transient Stability, Harmonic Analysis, Protective Device Coordination, and ETAP Real-Time.
ETAP includes wind turbine models developed by the WECC Modeling & Validation Working Group. These models were developed for analyzing the stability impact of large arrays of wind turbines with a single point of network interconnection. Dynamic simulations have been performed with these models, and comparisons made with results derived from higher-order models used in manufacturer-specific representations of aero conversion and drivetrain dynamics.
