Importing distribution grid model to Python

Hi all,

I am currently writting my Master Thesis and therefore I have to carry out a LV distribution grid model simulation to quantify the flexibility of distributed energy storage systems (batteries) for local voltage support. The model that I have is in pfd format from the DigSilent-Power Factory software. Nevertheless, I would like to inport the model data to the open source tool Python so that I can do the analysis and simulation with Pandapower. So far, I have not found any solutions for this and I would appreciate any suggestions/advice.

Thank you in advance.

Hi!

This is the software I develop: https://github.com/SanPen/GridCal
It can open .dgs files from power factory.

I started it because I was frustrated with power factory. So far this program is used in research, master thesis and consultancy.

I think it will suit your needs. If you have any comments do not hesitate to contact me.

best regards,
Santiago

Hi Santiago,
