Power network regulation is presented as a benchmark problem for assessing and developing switched-mode optimal control approaches like mode scheduling, sliding window scheduling and modal design. Power network evolution modeled by the swing equations and coupled with controllable switching components is a nonlinear, high-dimensional problem. The proposed benchmark problem is the 54 generator IEEE 118 Bus Test Case composed of 106 states. Open questions include scalability in state and number of modes of operation, as well as real-time implementation, reliability, hysteresis, and timing constraints. Can the entire North American power network be regulated? Can every transmission line have independent switching control authority?.
