ATTENTION:  Trial Event 1 has closed.  Sandbox and Challenge 1 submissions are closed during the Trial Event 1 evaluation period.  The GO Competition Platform will reopen once all Trial Event 1 submissions have been evaluated and scored; estimated date is May 1, 2019 (subject to change).  E-mail will be sent to all GO website registered users once the GO Competition Platform has reopened.

Datasets

Sandbox submissions are processed as Division 1 submissions (10-minute Real-time limit with Objective Funtion Scoring).

Only the person who made the Sandbox submission, their team, and the GO Operations Team, can see the results.

Challenge 1: IEEE 14 Bus (1 scenario)

(1 network; 1 scenario)

This should be the dataset used with your first submission. 

This 14-bus IEEE dataset, used during Beta testing, has been adapted to follow the Challenge 1 Input Files and Format guidelines and consists of four files: case.con, case.inl, case.raw and case.rop. This small problem is intended to assist initial development of Entrants algorithms. It is small, fast and exercises most of the mechanics of the Evaluation Platform, but not the algorithmic challenges posed by the actual Challenge 1 datasets.

The IEEE 14-bus test case is a model of the American Electric Power System in 1962. IEEE14 has had many additions over the years: line limits, generator costs, etc. A security contingency has been defined for for the GO Competition. This is one of the feasible scenarios generated by random perturbation of some of the limits (e.g. on generator power output and branch flows). This problem is small enough that it should not pose any challenge to off-the-shelf optimization solvers, commercial or otherwise.

UPDATE: The zip file was updated November 14, 2018. The update filled in data that was missing when using the full industry standard data format. The previous version was correct according to Challenge 1 format requirements, but caused problems with parsers using a strict industry standard format interpretation.

 

IEEE 14 bus solution example

The following solution files produce a cost of 14,676.96 and an objective value (score) of 14,677.02; a base case penalty of 0.001641 and contingency penalty of 0.045255 were incurred.

In the base case the maximum real power balance violation was 9.95e-09 on bus 1 and the maximum reactive power balance violation was 3.55e-13 on bus 4.

In the contingency case  the maximum real power balance violation was 3.15e-07 on bus 3 and the maximum reactive power balance violation was 2.66e-12 on bus 3.

All other constraints had zero violation.
