Release: PowerModels, PowerModels, PowerModels,

Dev: Build Status codecov

PowerModels.jl is a Julia/JuMP package for Steady-State Power Network Optimization. It is designed to enable computational evaluation of emerging power network formulations and algorithms in a common platform. The code is engineered to decouple problem specifications (e.g. Power Flow, Optimal Power Flow, ...) from the power network formulations (e.g. AC, DC-approximation, SOC-relaxation, ...). This enables the definition of a wide variety of power network formulations and their comparison on common problem specifications.

Core Problem Specifications

  • Power Flow (pf)
  • Optimal Power Flow (opf)
  • Optimal Transmission Switching (ots)
  • Transmission Network Expansion Planning (tnep)

Core Network Formulations

  • AC (polar and rectangular coordinates)
  • DC Approximation (polar coordinates)
  • SDP Relaxation (W-space)
  • SOC Relaxation (W-space)
  • QC Relaxation (W+L-space)

Network Data Formats

  • Matpower ".m" files
  • PTI ".raw" files (PSS(R)E v33 specfication)

Documentation

The package documentation includes a variety of useful information including a quick-start guide, network model specification, and baseline results.

Additionally, these presentations provide a brief introduction to various aspects of PowerModels,
