Description:

PanTaGruEl is a dynamical grid model designed to investigate the propagation of disturbances in the continental European transmission grid.

The construction of the model is detailed here.

Features:

  • Precise distribution of national demands to network buses.
  • Realistic electrical parameters of transmission lines.
  • Merit-Order based economic dispatch of generators.
  • Dynamical parameters of generators and loads for transient stability investigations.

Data files:

Our model is provided in an extended Matpower format and as csv raw data. For more information on Matpower format, see Appendix B of its manual.

Script files:

opf_ex.m performs optimal power flow computations for two load configurations.
spectral_ex.m presents a basic spectral analysis.
dynamics_ex.m give a minimal example of dynamical simulations.

Requirements:

Our model has been developed for use with Matpower. If you are interested in a port to another language, please contact us.
