This report catalogs the results of a brief survey, conducted in early 2003, designed to answer the question "What DOE Laboratories electric power grid modeling and analysis software tools are available today that might be of value in carrying out a next-generation National Transmission Grid Study?" Software tool capabilities are described as answers by respondents to a standardized questionnaire, and are summarized by a datasheet for each tool. This survey does not address the significantly broader universe of tools and capabilities actively under research and development within the Laboratories, but not ready for use.
