Synthetic Network for the Alaska "RainBelt" Electric Power System

The student team developed publicly accessible Alaska-based power system models and associated load and generation data representing seasonal and futuristic scenarios. The model and data is shared via GitHub and the BetterGrids repository, and is reproducible through code or documentation. Prior to this project, Alaska and Alaskan generation or load data were excluded from existing power system models, which are essential for assessing operations and planning of electric grids, including power systems' stability and future generation and load scenarios.
