Test network 124 nodes

This dataset contains the information on a test network analyzed in the Project CitinES (Design of a Decision support tool for sustainable, reliable and cost-effective energy strategies in cities and industrial complexes). It includes data about the network structure, loads, load profiles of different types, distributed generation and electric vehicles. Part of the raw data was provided by EDP Distribuição; other raw data came from ERSE (Energy Services Regulatory Authority) without any restriction. The original network characteristics were adapted to represent a typical Italian medium-voltage network. Other data are parameters set by INESC TEC in the study. This data set can be useful for the reproduction of similar studies concerning distribution planning or reinforcement policies. It might be also used in other research studies on the impact of electric vehicles, DSM actions, distributed generation or even long term impact studies.
