Summer School  /  September 18, 2023  -  September 22, 2023

Grid planning tool pandapower

Pandapower is an easy-to-use open source tool for modelling, analyzing and optimizing power systems with a high degree of automation. It combines the data analysis library pandas and the power flow solver PYPOWER to create an easy to use network calculation program.

This international summer school includes a theoretical overview of pandapower and a deep dive into real-world application examples of grid planning and modelling.

Summer school participants will get to know the pandapower toolbox and perform their own programming tasks. The week-long summer school starts with a workshop on the functionalities of pandapower and the distribution of programming tasks. In daily question and answer sessions, participants can work on tasks with expert support. However, the main programming takes place in a self-study environment.

The summer school is designed for everyone involved in the network planning process, such as:

  • Distribution system operators
  • Transmission system operators
  • Municipal utility companies
  • Network operators
  • Associations
  • Research institutes

After the workshop, participants will be able to use the pandapower tool and adapt the code for their personal use cases.
