Reliability Test System - Grid Modernization Lab Consortium
This repository, and the associated data has been developed to facilitate Production Cost Modeling. Reliability calculations using the updated RTS-GMLC data in this repository amd the RTS3 program, provided by Gene Preston can be found here.
RTS_Data folder contains data in an open
csv format, and in grid modeling tool specific formats:
- SourceData contains several
csvfiles that describe all the RTS-GMLC data.
- FormattedData contains folders for each tool specific data format. Each tool specific folder is also intended to contain a script that automates the conversion from
SourceDatain addition to solutions obtained from each tool in the
FormattedData/*tool*/*tool*_Solutionfolder. Currently datasets are included in the following formats:
TODO and Identified Areas of Improvement:
- Conventional Plant Data:
- Add information about different operating configuration for combined cycle plants
- Evaluate/address the realism of the relative sizes of units in different categories
- Wind and Solar Data:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:GridMod/RTS-GMLC.git cd RTS-GMLC git submodule init git submodule update
Contributions to the development and enahancement of RTS data is welcome. Please see CONTRIBUTING.md for contribution guidelines.
