PowerSimulations.jl is a Julia/JuMP package designed to develop and study power system operation models in steady-state. It uses the data model implemented in
PowerSystems.jl to construct optimization models.
The package supports two major analysis tools:
- Operational Models: Meant to study and analyze multiperiod operational model formulations that can be specified by the combination of device formulations and network models.
- Simulations Models: Developed to run sequences of operational models to study model interactions such as cost-production-modeling.
The documentation is still work in progress.
The latest stable release of PowerModels can be installed using the Julia package manager with
] add PowerSimulations
For the current development version, "checkout" this package with
] add PowerSimulations#master
An appropriate optimization solver is required for running PowerSimulations models. Refer to
JuMP.jl solver's page to select the most appropriate for the application of interest.
