The goal of the project “SimBench” is to develop a benchmark data set for solutions in grid analysis, grid planning and grid operation management. This data set is intended to make developments of new methods and solutions independent of non-publicly available individual grid data sets to ensure comparability, transparency as well as transparency of various developments in this field.
The SimBench dataset, as the main result of the project, is fully and publicly available in the “Download” area of this website. The dataset contains electrical parameters for the static modelling of electric grids and covers voltage levels from low to extra-high voltage. All 13 basic grids can be interconnected and are available in three variants (future scenarios). Also integrated are time series in 15-minute resolution for a whole year as well as predefined study cases.
