Representative Australian Electricity Feeders with load and solar generation profiles
This data set includes models of 19 Australian electricity feeders that were identified as representative of the Australian network in the National Feeder Taxonomy Study. The models are available both in PSS Sincal and PowerFactory, two major industry-standard power simulation tools. Real-world load and solar profiles are included for the loads in ... morethese feeders. These profiles are half-hour time series spanning one year. The user also has the ability to attach their own load and solar generation profiles to the feeders.
For more detailed information about these models, see the supporting attachments. less

The Sincal feeder models were obtained from the National Feeder Taxonomy Study. The PowerFactory models were obtained by converting the Sincal models by DigSilent.
The load profiles were obtained from the Smart Grids Smart Cities repository as well as from Ergon Energy. The solar generation profiles were obtained from PVWatts.
