Greensboro Synthetic Network

Version 0.1, November 29, 2017

A fully synthetic distribution dataset for Greensboro North Carolina has been created using the U.S. Reference Network Model (RNM-US).

The network consists of three types of distribution areas:

  1. Industrial
  2. Rural
  3. Urban-suburban

covering an area of 1530 km2 (45 x 34 km). The synthetic network for each area can be visualized using the set of provided GIS files in GSO_RNM_GIS_Network.zip.

Two variants of the network were created corresponding to a cold and mixed humid climate conditions. The network uploaded here corresponds to the cold climate. A summary of the total number of network components can be found in GSO_Network_Summary.xlsx. The base network is provided in Open-DSS format in GSO_Base_Network.zip.

A series of load growth scenarios have been created on top of the base network. This scenario describes a base load profile along with profiles for 10%, 50%, and 100% load growth. The files for this scenario are available in GSO_Load_Growth_Scenario.zip.

Data needed for distribution optimal powerflow (OPF) scenario has also been created and is available in GSO_OPF_Scenario.zip. This data suppliments the base or load growth network data.
