edisgo.tools.pypsa_io module

This module provides tools to convert graph based representation of the grid topology to PyPSA data model. Call to_pypsa() to retrieve the PyPSA grid container.

edisgo.tools.pypsa_io.to_pypsa(network, mode, timesteps)[source]

Translate graph based grid representation to PyPSA Network

For details from a user perspective see API documentation of analyze() of the API class EDisGo.

Translating eDisGo’s grid topology to PyPSA representation is structured into translating the topology and adding time series for components of the grid. In both cases translation of MV grid only (mode=’mv’), LV grid only (mode=’lv’), MV and LV (mode=None) share some code. The code is organized as follows:

  • Medium-voltage only (mode=’mv’): All medium-voltage grid components are exported by mv_to_pypsa() including the LV station. LV grid load and generation is considered using add_aggregated_lv_components(). Time series are collected by _pypsa_load_timeseries (as example for loads, generators and buses) specifying mode=’mv’). Timeseries for aggregated load/generation at substations are determined individually.
  • Low-voltage only (mode=’lv’): LV grid topology including the MV-LV transformer is exported. The slack is defind at primary side of the MV-LV transformer.
  • Both level MV+LV (mode=None): The entire grid topology is translated to PyPSA in order to perform a complete power flow analysis in both levels together. First, both grid levels are translated seperately using mv_to_pypsa() and lv_to_pypsa(). Those are merge by combine_mv_and_lv(). Time series are obtained at once for both grid levels.

This PyPSA interface is aware of translation errors and performs so checks on integrity of data converted to PyPSA grid representation

  • Sub-graphs/ Sub-networks: It is ensured the grid has no islanded parts
  • Completeness of time series: It is ensured each component has a time series
  • Buses available: Each component (load, generator, line, transformer) is connected to a bus. The PyPSA representation is check for completeness of buses.
  • Duplicate labels in components DataFrames and components’ time series DataFrames
Parameters:
  • network (Network) – eDisGo grid container
  • mode (str) –

    Determines grid levels that are translated to PyPSA grid representation. Specify

    • None to export MV and LV grid levels. None is the default.
    • (‘mv’ to export MV grid level only. This includes cumulative load and generation from underlying LV grid aggregated at respective LV station. This option is implemented, though the rest of edisgo does not handle it yet.)
    • (‘lv’ to export LV grid level only. This option is not yet
      implemented)
  • timesteps (pandas.DatetimeIndex or pandas.Timestamp) – Timesteps specifies which time steps to export to pypsa representation and use in power flow analysis.
Returns:

The PyPSA network container.

Return type:

pypsa.Network

edisgo.tools.pypsa_io.mv_to_pypsa(network)[source]

Translate MV grid topology representation to PyPSA format

MV grid topology translated here includes

  • MV station (no transformer, see analyze())
  • Loads, Generators, Lines, Storages, Branch Tees of MV grid level as well as LV stations. LV stations do not have load and generation of LV level.
Parameters:network (Network) – eDisGo grid container
Returns:
  • dict of pandas.DataFrame – A DataFrame for each type of PyPSA components constituting the grid topology. Keys included
    • ’Generator’
    • ’Load’
    • ’Line’
    • ’BranchTee’
    • ’Transformer’
    • ’StorageUnit’
  • .. warning:: – PyPSA takes resistance R and reactance X in p.u. The conversion from values in ohm to pu notation is performed by following equations

    r_{p.u.} = R_{\Omega} / Z_{B}

x_{p.u.} = X_{\Omega} / Z_{B}

with

Z_{B} = V_B / S_B

    I’m quite sure, but its not 100 % clear if the base voltage V_B is chosen correctly. We take the primary side voltage of transformer as the transformers base voltage. See #54 for discussion.
