The objective of this paper is to inform the operating and planning entities within WECC on the development of the composite load model, the model applicability to the studies of Fault-Induced Delayed Voltage Recovery (FIDVR), and potential implications to the reliability criteria. The paper also makes recommendations on improving FIDVR monitoring, load model validation, steps towards load model implementation, and reliability criteria review.
