This paper outlines some of the restrictions which currently exist in the generation data of the IEEE Reliability Test System (RTS). The paper extends the RTS by including more factors and system conditions which may be included in the reliability evaluation of generating systems. These extensions create a wider set of consistent data. The paper also includes generation reliability indices for the base and extended RTS. These indices have been evaluated without any approximations in the evaluation process and therefore provide a set of exact indices against which the results from alternative and approximate methods can be compared.
