Network modeling

Model type Simulation model for the spatial analysis of the supply infrastructure for the power sector
Model approach The model is based on public and specially developed reference network structures. Mapping of all network levels possible. Static and dynamic load flow analysis using Powerfactory software. The model generates results for static points in the network and annual series for network loads in hourly resolution.
Model Target   Modeling of the current status as well as scenarios and forecasts of the grid infrastructure. Analysis of the effects of energy system-relevant measures and calculation of parameters such as energy storage requirements, grid expansion requirements and bottlenecks.
Target group Network operator
Reference projects MethQuest, BAES 1 und 2
Publications Methodology to generate MV and LV reference network models (RNMs) from public data, 2017.
