Geomagnetically Induced Current
Low-frequency geomagnetically-induced currents (GIC) on the electric grid can be induced by rare geomagnetic events, and may impact electric grid infrastructure reliability and operations.
Along with PowerWorld Corporation, we developed the binary three-dimensional (B3D) file format to hold electric field data for GIC and other studies. See documentation here. Tools in Python and Matlab to read and write the B3D format are available on Github.
Synthetic Electric Grid Datasets
Building high-quality, freely-available power grid cases is a major emphasis of my research. Large, realistic test systems drive innovation for a smarter grid. These cases are built using a synthetic approach, which constructs fictitious transmission networks on real geography, integrated with actual, public data. We are building systems up to 70,000 buses with data for power flow and transient stability solutions. The synthetic power grid case repository hosts all our datasets for public download.
