Do-a-thon pandapower / PowerModels



We have recently created an interface from pandapower to PowerModels that allows to optimize the detailed network models that can be built with pandapower with the Julia package PowerModels [1]. This has been proven so far to be a great way to use the detailed network models of pandapower in combination with the JuMP library.

Depending on the previous knowledge of interested participants, this could either be a teach-a-thon about pandapower / PowerModels or a do-a-thon to improve the existing framework. Possible goals for a do-a-thon are:

  • integrating the storage models of pandapower and PowerModels
  • coupling the DC line model of pandapower to PowerModels
  • running time-dependent OPF simulations with PowerModels through pandapower


#edit:this might combine well with the do-a-thon about distribution system optimization

Very interesting! I am also currently working on integrating the various (optimal) power flow formulations of PowerModels.jl into a Julia/JuMP implementation of PyPSA [1]. It’s still in development, but the motivation is to reflect power flow more accurately in energy system design optimization with transmission, generation, storage expansion.

I’d be very interested to learn how pandapower and PowerModels interact with each other.

Also, thumbs up for distribution system optimization!
