  author={H. V. Pico and Brian B. Johnson},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Power Systems},
Transmission faults caused by recent wildfires in California have induced the disconnection of utility-scale converters in photovoltaic (PV) power plants. Postmortem investigations reported that tripping commands were caused by phase-locked loops (PLLs) and dc-side dynamics, which are typically unmodeled in classical transient stability studies. Since existing simulation packages rely on simplified models that neglect these dynamics, they have a limited capability to predict converter behavior… Expand
