Pillar 5 – Open Data & Tools

GPST Icon logo

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory are working to characterize and further improve different existing open models and tools that are most applicable to G-PST activities. An open tools portal with a classification approach is being transferred to a public space for easy accessibility. Additionally, the G-PST Consortium will support the application of these open tools and data with developing country partners.

Open-Source Power Systems Analysis Packages: Cross-package Coordination for System Planning

22 June 2022 | 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. MDT

The Global Power System Transformation Consortium (G-PST)’s Pillar 5, named “Open Data & Tools”, and LF Energy convened a group of developers from Réseau de Transport d’Électricité (RTE) France, the Fraunhofer Institute, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and the University of Edinburgh to compare open-source tools available for analyzing power systems.

This event demonstrates a planning exercise using open-source power system analysis. Each package handles a step in a coordinated workflow to demonstrate tool interoperability and coordination, highlighting benefits and challenges of conducting analysis workflows with multiple tools.

Speakers:

  • Clayton Barrows, Senior Engineer, NREL
  • Benoît Jeanson, Enterprise Architect, Open-Source Program Office of RTE (French TSO), RTE France
  • Maximilian Parzen, Director of PyPSA meets Earth Initiative, PhD Candidate at the University of Edinburgh
  • Roman Bolgaryn, Researcher at Fraunhofer Institute
  • Nicolas Omont, Vice President of Operations at Artelys
  • Moderator: Juha Kiviluoma, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland

Open Discussion with Global Power System Operators: The AI Opportunity

March 2022

In this webinar, representatives from power system operators around the world share their impressions of the opportunities, challenges, bottlenecks, and on-the-ground realities associated with several areas of innovation identified in the G-PST research agenda. The webinar aims to begin an active and ongoing discussion between power system operators and members of the power systems and AI/machine learning research communities, with the goal of forming collaborative teams that go on to address the challenges discussed. This event was hosted by Climate Change AI, the G-PST Consortium, and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), with speakers from the G-PST Founding System Operators – Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), California ISO (CAISO), EirGrid, Energinet, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), and National Grid ESO.
