The paper proposes methodology for development of dynamic equivalent model of hybrid renewable energy source (HRES) plant suitable for reliable assessment of the overall transient stability of the realistic, large power systems. Transient stability index is used for system stability assessment, and consequently for the evaluation of the model performance. The historical plant production data and transmission network short-circuit fault statistics, together with probabilistically modelled uncertainties associated with system operation, are used to generate a set of realistic dynamic responses of the plant over the period of one year. The use of clustering algorithms enabled unsupervised grouping/clustering of responses and development of the low order equivalent models in the form of a transfer function with voltage as an input and real and reactive power as outputs. The methodology is illustrated on a number of case studies using two HRES plant configurations. It is demonstrated that a very few low order dynamic models can be used to model the HRES plant during the year for sufficiently accurate transient stability assessment of the power system. The possibility of deriving these equivalent models based on forecasted HRES plant composition makes them attractive for practical application in power system dynamic security studies.
