Historical RTS Development (newest to oldest):
This is the link to the latest RTS modernization data.
RTS3 program updated with storage and tested to insure 1986 exact indices are produced.
Older RTS3 which includes a Matlab version. See the LOLE seek feature in operation.
RTS2.zip expands RTS1 to a two area model bringing transmission constraints into LOLP studies.
RTS1.zip has all the 1986 and 2016 files plus multi-state generators and auto LOLE capability.
RTS2016 info describes an LOLE program for evaluating the capacity value of wind, water, and solar.
RTS2016.zip has four UK case studes and all associated files including the program code and executables.
RTS1986.zip runs example cases verifying the new RTS program reproduces 1986 IEEE RTS paper 'exact' indices.
Sequential Monte Carlo vs sequential COPT.

Electric System Reliability:
Is having 100% renewable energy for a country feasible? The answer is - extremely unlikely.
