This paper develops a representation of the Northeastern U.S. bulk electric power system, with an emphasis on New York and New England. The representation has two parts: a 36-bus electrical model in PTI-23 format and market data in the form of generator bids and load demands. The market data are distilled from historical data on public web sites. Since the historical data are available on an hourly basis over many years, the representation is quite rich. In addition, this paper includes the mix of generation at each bus in the model so that generation cost (fuel and emissions) and unit commitment constraints can be deduced. The representation is intended to be a test-bed for formulating, simulating and analyzing the combined technical and economic objectives of the changing electric power industry. It is further intended to be a test-bed for comparing methods of simulating electric power systems and electricity markets operating under engineering constraints. It can, for example, be used for power flow, optimal power flow, reliability, market clearing, and other economic studies. The representation as described is intended only for steady-state equilibrium studies and does not account for inter-temporal effects such as unit commitment constraints. It can, however, be extended to account for those effects.
