This paper describes the use of field measurements to validate a wind power plant model. A three-phase time-domain wind power plant model, based on the Western Electricity Coordinating Council generic model, has been developed with this validation in mind. The available fault data consists of the three-phase voltages and currents measured at the point of interconnection (POI) of the wind plant with the grid. For validation, the measured voltage data is injected into the simulation model and the current response from the model is compared to the measured current data from the real-world wind plant. Real power and reactive power flows calculated from the measured data and the model output are compared. The advantage of this validation method, namely use of currents in addition to real and reactive power flows, is also discussed. Comparison with a positive-sequence model is also provided.
