Kraus H., Brückl O. (2020): Use and Programmatic Extension of PowerFactory for the Implementation of Automated Network Planning at the Distribution Grid Level, 10th International Conference on Advanced Computer Information Technologies (ACIT), 16-18.09.2020, Deggendorf.
In this paper it is presented how the network calculation program PowerFactory is used to implement automated network planning algorithms. PowerFactory’s internal functions and data sets are discussed and it is shown how the functions and data sets have been extended by specially developed scripts to enable the automation of network planning steps. Finally, the methodology applied to calculate grid use cases is briefly discussed.
