Abstract

OpenGridMap is an open source project that crowdsources realistic power grid data to be used for research purposes. In this paper, we propose an approach for the automatic generation of power gird simulation models from crowdsourced data. The proposed approach orders the crowdsourced data into a power circuit relation which is then used to produce a CIM description file and subsequently a power grid simulation model. We provide experiments which demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach on OpenGridMap data. Given the large amount of crowdsourced data available, our approach has the potential to generate power grid simulations of larger size, more variety and more accuracy than the currently available state-of-the-art test power grids.
