PowerSimData is part of a Python software ecosystem developed by Breakthrough Energy Sciences to carry out power flow study in the U.S. electrical grid.
Here are a few things that PowerSimData can do:
A detailed tutorial can be found on our docs.
pip install powersimdata
PowerSimData relies on several Python packages all available on PyPi. The list can be found in the requirements.txt or Pipfile files both located at the root of this package.
To take full advantage of our software, we recommend that you clone/fork plug and follow the information therein to get our containerized framework up and running. A client/server installation is also possible and outlined in our Installation Guide. Either way, you will need a powerful solver, e.g. Gurobi, to run complex scenarios.
Only a limited set of features are available when solely installing PowerSimData. If you choose this option, we recommend that you use
pipenv sync pipenv shell
since the dependencies will be installed in an isolated environment. It is of course possible to install the dependencies using the requirements file:
pip install -r requirements.txt
