Transient stability analysis is performed to assess the power system's condition after a severe contingency and is carried out using simulations. To adequately assess the system's transient stability, the correct dynamic models for the machines (ie, generators, condensers, and motors) along with their dynamic parameters must be defined. The IEEE test systems contain the data required for steady-state studies. However, neither the dynamic model of the machines nor their specific parameters have been established for transient studies. As a result, there is a demand for test bed systems suitable for transient analysis. This paper defines dynamic machine models along with their parameters for each IEEE test bed system, thus producing full dynamic models for all test systems. It is important to mention that the parameters of the proposed dynamic models are based on typical data. The test systems …
