Historical RTS Development (newest to oldest):
The new NREL IEEE RTS data is posted on Gethub and formatted for RTS3 with some results posted here. updated 06/25/2017 is a single area model with a new input format and new auto LOLE seek feature. Video.
Power Globers email describing work by Clayton Barrow at NREL on a modernization of the 1996 RTS. expands RTS1 to a two area model bringing transmission constraints into LOLP studies. 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. has four UK case studes and all associated files including the program code and executables. runs example cases verifying the new RTS program reproduces 1986 IEEE RTS paper 'exact' indices.
Sequential Monte Carlo vs sequential COPT.
