Abstract

This paper discusses the need for new test system models to be developed and made available to researchers. A number of features of such test systems are proposed. These include sufficient size and scope to allow control interactions to be studied but not so much that phenomena associated with new technologies cannot be understood. It is recalled that the performance of new technologies and their controls should be verified on a full system model that is as faithful to the real system and its parameters as possible and that this requires access to data often owned by generating companies to which system operators have access but do not feel able to disclose. Finally, arguments are presented as to why such data should be disclosed and it is recommended that regulatory authorities take steps to achieve it.
