Power systems are undergoing a significant transformation as a result of the retirements of conventional coal-fired generation units and the increasing integration of converter interfaced renewable resources. The instantaneous renewable generation penetration as a percentage of the load served in megawatt (MW), in some areas of the United States (U.S.) sometimes approaches over 50 percent. These changes have introduced new challenges for reliability studies considering the two functional reliability aspects, i.e., adequacy and the dynamic security or operating reliability.
