    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This dataset was generated based on a map extract from May 11, 2016. This is an &lt;em&gt;unofficial&lt;/em&gt; 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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This dataset may be inaccurate in several ways, notably:&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;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.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Line structure conflicts are resolved by picking the first structure in the set&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Transformers are &lt;em&gt;not present&lt;/em&gt; in the original ENTSO-E dataset, there presence has been derived from the different voltages from connected lines.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;All users are advised to exercise caution in the use of this dataset. No liability is taken for inaccuracies.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
