PyPSA-Eur: An Open Optimisation Model of the European Transmission System

PyPSA-Eur is an open model dataset of the European power system at the transmission network level that covers the full ENTSO-E area. The model is suitable both for operational studies and generation and transmission expansion planning studies. The continental scope and highly resolved spatial scale enables a proper description of the long-range smoothing effects for renewable power generation and their varying resource availability.

The model is described in the documentation and in the paper PyPSA-Eur: An Open Optimisation Model of the European Transmission System, 2018, arXiv:1806.01613.

PyPSA-Eur Grid Model

PyPSA-Eur Grid Model Simplified

The model is designed to be imported into the open toolbox PyPSA for operational studies as well as generation and transmission expansion planning studies.

The dataset consists of:

  • A grid model based on a modified GridKit extraction of the ENTSO-E Transmission System Map. The grid model contains 6001 lines (alternating current lines at and above 220kV voltage level and all high voltage direct current lines) and 3657 substations.
  • The open power plant database powerplantmatching.
  • Electrical demand time series from the OPSD project.
  • Renewable time series based on ERA5 and SARAH, assembled using the atlite tool.
  • Geographical potentials for wind and solar generators based on land use (CORINE) and excluding nature reserves (Natura2000) are computed with the vresutils library and the glaes library.

Already-built versions of the model can be found in the accompanying Zenodo repository.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
