The number of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and dynamic loads is increasing rapidly in modern power systems. Their aggregated effects on power grid dynamics are, however, still insufficiently explored. It is expected that distribution-transmission interactions will be more pronounced in the future, resulting in a stronger need to analyse such effects. One of the emerging issues in modern systems’ distribution-transmission interactions is short-term voltage stability (STVS), which at present receives relatively low attention among the researchers. This paper utilizes advanced load and DER models in a large-system study, intending to determine the relationship between various distribution system specifics and the bulk power system STVS. Based on a developed heuristic method that generates a big data set by performing an extensive number of simulations, it is shown how the dynamic load and DER interact with each other in terms of STVS, and what load and DER amounts and types are beneficial or detrimental to modern systems. The study improves the understanding of modern distribution-transmission interactions related to STVS and emphasizes the importance of more accurate future modelling and analyses.
