The ACTIVSg70k test case is a 70000-bus power system test case that is entirely synthetic, built from public information and a statistical analysis of real power systems. It bears no relation to the actual grid in this location, except that generation and load profiles are similar, based on public data. The case is provided in PowerWorld format, Matpower format, PSS/E raw format, and PSLF epc format.
Synthetic electric grid models are fictitious representations that are designed to be statistically and functionally similar to actual electric grids while containing no confidential critical energy infrastructure information (CEII). Some of these cases were developed with the support of the U.S. DOE ARPA-E Grid Data program; their support is gratefully acknowledged. A description of the initial algorithm used to develop these cases is given in:
