  "abstract": "<p>This dataset was generated based on a map extract from May 11, 2016. This is an <em>unofficial</em> 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.</p>\n\n<p>This dataset may be inaccurate in several ways, notably:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>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.</li>\n\t<li>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.</li>\n\t<li>Line structure conflicts are resolved by picking the first structure in the set</li>\n\t<li>Transformers are <em>not present</em> in the original ENTSO-E dataset, there presence has been derived from the different voltages from connected lines.</li>\n\t<li>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.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>All users are advised to exercise caution in the use of this dataset. No liability is taken for inaccuracies.</p>",
