This paper describes the implementation of electrical simulation model for IEC 61400-27-1 standard Type-3A generator. A general overview of the different wind electric generators(WEG) types are given and the main focused on Type-3A WEG standard models, namely a model for a variable speed wind turbine with partial scale power converter WEG including a two mass mechanical model. The generic models for fixed and variable speed WEGs models are suitable for fundamental frequency positive sequence response simulations during short events in the power system such as voltage dips. The wind power penetration level continue to increase and the dynamic performance of WEG is more important with power system. The general configuration of the Type-3A model is presented and discussed, model implementation and results are provided in order to illustrate the range of applicability of the generic models.
