## About the test cases library

This website provides a power system oscillation test cases library generated by simulation to test algorithms for identifying the source of poorly damped or forced oscillation. All cases were created by simulation on a WECC 179-bus power system model (click to see description on the WECC 179-bus system base case model). With each test case of the library, we provide a case description, simulation results (to mimic PMU measurements with oscillation), and the simulation model in in the PSS/E V30 format.

The development of this test cases library was led by Dr. Slava Maslennikov (ISO-NE). The website is maintained by Mr. Bin Wang (UTK) and Dr. Kai Sun (UTK). Related simulation models and Matlab codes were prepared by Mr. Bin Wang. Currently, there are 23 oscillation cases available, including 9 cases on poorly damped natural electromechanical oscillations and 14 cases on forced oscillations. More cases will be added on an as-needed basis.

## Motivation and objective

## Test cases

### ➤Power system model

The power flow and dynamic files of all cases can be downloaded as one package using the link below. For forced oscillation cases, the dynamic files for modelling the external forces and their block diagrams are also included in the package. With the model, users can easily modify the parameters of their interests and design their own cases.

[DOWNLOAD]All Models (676KB)Instructions:

- For all natural oscillation cases, users can directly run the time-domain simulation in any program that accepts models in PSS/E V30 format.
- For all forced oscillation cases, users can run the time-domain simulation in either of the two ways below: (i) Install DSATools by Powertech Lab and run the simulation in TSAT.

(ii) Design the model for the external force according to the block diagram included in the above package and run the simulation using the users' own program.

### ➤Simulated PMU measurements

The simulated data from all cases can be downloaded from the links below. With these measurement data, users can directly load them into their program and run their location algorithm without dealing with models or simulations.

The default value of damping coefficient D for all generators is 4. In each case, any deviations from the default values are shown in the second column of the above table. The source of oscillations is the generator with negative D value.

Eigenanalysis results for the above cases are here (Eigenanalysis ND.xls).

As an example, here are the details of the cases ND_1, ND_4, and ND_6 and ND_7.

Each case of forced oscillations has only one generator with periodic signal injected into its excitation system. The presence of the excitation system to one generator only slightly changes the parameters of oscillations (Eigenanalysis Forced.xls) comparing to the base case (Eigenanalysis base case.xls).

Spectra of injected rectangular-wave disturbances in cases F_6_n (n = 1, 2, or 3) consist of only odd harmonics and the frequency of the first harmonic is shown in third column of the above table.

As an example, here are the details of the cases F_5_2, F_6_2.
