50 Generator Dynamic Test Case

This 50 generator dynamic stability test case, which includes a 145 bus power flow data file, was provided courtesy of Professor Vijay Vittal and Roger Treinen of Iowa State University. It was previously distributed by Iowa State on diskette, and has been the subject of an IEEE Committee report.

The format for the power flow data is the IEEE Common Data Format.

The format for both the dynamic and exciter data seems to be in the EPRI format described in the manual EPRI EL-2001-CCM, Project 1208 Computer Code Manual, January 1987. Of course, this dynamic data format may be described other places and I am not sure if there is an IEEE paper describing it.
