This page contains a taxonomy of 24 prototypical radial distribution feeder models, as well as the report describing their design, constructed under funding from the Department of Energy's Modern Grid Initiative. This taxonomy of prototypical feeders was developed in order to give researchers in academia as well as industry access to a set of detailed distribution feeder models that could be used to study and evaluate smart grid technologies on a national level. These feeders are representative of those found in the Continental United States and are designed to work with GridLAB-D version 2.0 and higher.
