New Publications on Synthetic Power Grids

(A. Birchfield)        (T. Xu)           (Dr. Overbye)

There are two new publications on synthetic power grids:

A. B. Birchfield, T. Xu and T. J. Overbye, “Power Flow Convergence and Reactive Power Planning in the Creation of Large Synthetic Grids,” to appear in IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, 2018

and

T. Xu, A. B. Birchfield and T. J. Overbye, “Modeling, Tuning and Validating System Dynamics in Synthetic Electric Grids,” to appear in IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, 2018.

Their work on synthetic networks is one of seven funded projects in this area by ARPA-E (Advanced Research Projects Agency within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)). More information on these ARPA-E projects can be found here.
