GridKit extract of ENTSO-E interactive map

Wiegmans, Bart

This dataset was generated based on a map extract from May 11, 2016. This is an unofficial extract of the ENTSO-E interactive map of the European power system (including to a limited extent North Africa and the Middle East). The dataset has been processed by GridKit to form complete topological connections. This dataset is neither approved nor endorsed by ENTSO-E.

This dataset may be inaccurate in several ways, notably:

  • Geographical coordinates are transfered from the ENTSO-E map, which is known to choose topological clarity over geographical accuracy. Hence coordinates will not correspond exactly to reality.
  • Voltage levels are typically provided as ranges by ENTSO-E, of which the lower bound has been reported in this dataset. Not all lines - especially DC lines - contain voltage information.
  • Line structure conflicts are resolved by picking the first structure in the set
  • Transformers are not present in the original ENTSO-E dataset, there presence has been derived from the different voltages from connected lines.
  • The connection between generators and busses is derived as the geographically nearest station at the lowest voltage level. This information is again not present in the ENTSO-E dataset.

All users are advised to exercise caution in the use of this dataset. No liability is taken for inaccuracies.
