Python for Power System Analysis (PyPSA) Version 0.13.1

Brown, Tom; Hörsch, Jonas; Schlachtberger, David

Python for Power System Analysis (PyPSA) is a free software toolbox for simulating and optimising modern power systems that include features such as conventional generators with unit commitment, variable wind and solar generation, storage units, sector coupling and mixed alternating and direct current networks. PyPSA is designed to scale well with large networks and long time series. Find out more at:


This is release 0.13.1 of PyPSA.

This release contains bug fixes for the new features introduced in 0.13.0.

  • netCDF export bug fixed (components that were all standard except their name were ignored).
  • HDF5 import/export bug fixed and now works with more than 1000 columns; HDF5 format is no longer deprecated.
  • When networks are copied or sliced, overridden components (introduced in 0.13.0) are also copied too.

We thank Tim Kittel for pointing out the first and second bugs. We thank Kostas Syranidis for not only pointing out the third issue with copying overridden components, but also submitting a fix as a pull request.

For this release we acknowledge funding to Tom Brown from the RE-INVEST project.
