This paper presents a tool to automatically generate distribution network models for the power engineering software OpenDSS. The tool was developed in a free and open source Geographical Information System (GIS) software that allows a direct translation of GIS to OpenDSS files. The paper shows the potential of the developed piece of software and how it can help power engineers to carry out detailed studies of medium and low voltage networks. It also explains data requirements in the GIS… CONTINUE READING
