Summer School Grid planning tool pandapower

Learn to use pandapower for modeling, analysis and network planning of your power grid - with excellent guidance and through independent learning.

The pandapower tool 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 practical 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 the tasks with expert support. However, the main programming takes place in self-study. The summer school is structured as follows.

The summer school is aimed at everyone involved in the network planning process, such as

distribution system operators
transmission system operators
municipal utility companies
network operators
research institutes

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