LIINES Smart Power Grid Test Case Repository:

Since 1979 when the Application of Probability Methods Subcommittee of the the Power System Engineering Committee developed the IEEE Reliability Test System, power system test cases have been an indispensable part of power system engineering research & development. Since then, several test case repositories have emerged. We recognize notable complementary efforts by:

The LIINES seeks to facilitate and enhance research collaboration by linking & mirroring these public test cases in addition to adding our datasets. We have also provided the original citation information for later use in formal publications.
