The capacity of the electrical power system in Egypt will increase rapidly in the coming twenty years. In year 2018, nuclear power generation will be connecting to the Egyptian electrical grid. Consequently, the interaction of nuclear power plants and other systems becomes a very important issue, and a detailed nuclear power model for the medium-term and long-term power system stability should be developed. However, there is no nuclear unit model that can describe the detailed characteristics of the nuclear unit in the available commercial power system simulation software. In this paper, a detailed pressurized water reactor (PWR) nuclear unit model for medium-term and long-term power system transient stability is proposed. The model is implemented by a user defined program in PSS/E through PSS/E Matlab Simulink Interface. This model can be used to analyze the interaction of nuclear power plants and other power systems. The simulation results show that the proposed model is valid.
