PowSyBl (Power System Blocks) is an open source framework written in Java, dedicated to electrical grid modelling and simulation. The power system blocks may be used through scripts for a quick shot, but also be assembled to build state of the art applications.
PowSyBl is part of the LF Energy Foundation, a project of The Linux Foundation that supports open source innovation projects within the energy and electricity sectors.
One major aim of the project is to make it easy to write complex software for power system simulation and analysis.
For example, using PowSyBl one can create applications able to:
- handle a variety of formats, such as CGMES for European data exchanges
- perform power flow simulations and security analyses on the network
- perform dynamic simulations on the network
Another key characteristic of PowSyBl is its modular design, at the core of the open source approach. It enables developers to extend or customize its features by providing their own plugins.Learn more User stories
