Texas A&M Smart Grid Center: synthetic (yet realistic) power system grids
Group name: TAMU_SmartGridCenter
Synthetic electric grid models are fictitious representations that are
designed to be statistically and functionally similar to actual electric
grids while containing no confidential critical energy infrastructure
information (CEII). Some of these cases were developed with the support
of the U.S. DOE ARPAE Grid Data program; their support is gratefully
acknowledged.

Title: Power flow Jacobian for a synthetic 2000bus power grid
Description:
ACTIVSg2000 is a 2000bus power system dataset that is entirely synthetic,
built from public information and a statistical analysis of real power
systems. Its geographic footprint is Texas, but it bears no relation to
any actual grid, except that generation and load profiles are similar,
based on public data. This matrix is the power flow Jacobian for the peak
planning operating point.
