Exchangeability of power flow simulators in smart grid co-simulations with mosaik

Abstract

Power flow simulators are indispensible when simulating and assessing future energy system scenarios potentially comprising vast numbers of actors, devices, markets, environmental phenomena etc. While open source power flow simulators are an appealing choice - as they come free of charge - commercially available power flow simulation and optimization suites have the clear benefit of being well established and trusted by the industry. Open source implementations often lack validation against these “trusted” outputs. In this paper we will demonstrate and discuss the integration and exchange of different (commercial as well as open source) power flow simulators with the co-simulation framework mosaik for the sake of comparing and possibly benchmarking the output of open source simulators.
