IEEE 13 Node Feeder Test Case
IEEE 13 Node Test Feeder is very small and used to test common features of distribution analysis software, operating at 4.16 kV. It is characterized by being short, relatively highly loaded, a single voltage regulator at the substation, overhead and underground lines, two shunt capacitors, an in-line transformer, and total 9 unbalanced loads.
The guide provided in IEEE13Node.Zip is one of several designed to support skills development in distribution network modeling. It can be used during standard university curricula, a short industry course, self-guided lessons, peer learning, or other training opportunities. Files resulting from the guide can also be modified at the discretion of the user to pursue advanced topics of analysis. The IEEE Test Feeders are used as examples given their wide recognition and use. Resulting power flow analysis and short circuit analysis are presented in separate documents for each test feeder. Each guide is developed through a partnership between Arizona State University researchers and XENDEE. These training guides have been successfully used to train people individually, in small and large classrooms, during interactive microgrid boot camps, and during short sessions for industry integrators and operators.
