Studies to evaluate the power system impacts of geomagnetic disturbances (GMDs) can benefit from geographically realistic public test cases to validate methodologies and analysis tools. Presently very few GMD test cases exist that are not restricted by data confidentiality. In this paper, we outline a method to generate completely synthetic transmission system networks suitable for GMD studies. Public energy and census data form the basis for generation, load, and geographic substation… CONTINUE READING
