As wind power generation increases, power system operators are challenged by the detailed modeling and simulation of wind power plants to realize the behavior and to maintain the stability of their power systems. In order to investigate the performance of the wind power plants, dynamic root mean square (RMS, 50 Hz phasor dynamics) and electromagnetic transient (EMT) models are very crucial with standards and guidelines. These dynamic models have been developed in the last two decades by the wind turbine manufacturers and plant and power system tool developers. In accordance with this progress, Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has published a dynamic modeling acceptance test (DMAT) to assess the accuracy, consistency, and robustness of RMS and EMT models used for power system analysis. In this paper, DMAT is summarized to introduce how AEMO guides the modeling aspects of wind power plants in their power system. Additional inputs have been discussed to improve the modeling perspective for the future guidelines.
