Welcome to SimBench

The goal of the project "SimBench" is to develop a benchmark data set for solutions in grid analysis, grid planning and grid operation management. This data set is intended to make developments of new methods and solutions independent of non-publicly available individual grid data sets to ensure comparability, transparency as well as transparency of various developments in this field.
