Synthetic Grid Papers

August 30, 2018

Tom Overbye has recently published two papers regarding synthetic grids, both available online. “Educational Applications of Large Synthetic Power Grids” This paper describes the use of large electric grids in university electric power systems courses. Since much actual power system information is not publicly available, the application of public domain synthetic grids developed by the […]

Frequency Response Videos

February 14, 2018

These two videos show the frequency response of our 10K synthetic grid to a large generator fault. The first shows the total frequency response, whereas the second one just shows a single mode (0.73 Hz). With new Simulator capabilities, doing this detailed modal analysis is now quite easy. Because this is based on a synthetic […]

Synthetic Cases Including System Dynamics

May 24, 2017

Researchers at Texas A&M University have released the following video showing the frequency of a synthetic power system oscillating over time.  The video was created using PowerWorld Simulator and a synthetic power system case, including synthetic transient models.  The case contains no CEII data and may be used by industry participants and researchers to model […]

New Synthetic Power Flow Cases

May 3, 2017

A new website has been added by Texas A&M University providing a repository of publicly available, non-confidential synthetic power system test cases, including cases with up to 2000 buses. Electric Grid Test Cases This repository includes cases in a number of formats; you can also download a synthetic 2000 bus PWB here (and its corresponding PWD)
