Steady state analysis cannot provide the details of how system evolves in cascading failure. Dynamic response of generator plays an important role in power system operation and blackout events. In this paper, classical generator and detail generator models are integrated into system model for cascading dynamic simulations.. The cascading scenarios are compared using both steady state and dynamic simulations. Classical models are simpler; however, the detailed generator model is more accurate. Generator performance of speed deviation and angle deviations as well as the bus voltage profile are investigated for various scenarios. The IEEE 118-bus, 20-generator test case is used as the test system.
