The energy transition poses new challenges to all parties in the energy sector. For grid operators, the rise in renewable energy and the electrification of energy consumption drives the grid to its limits. By using open source, participating in Open Source projects, Open Sourcing internal projects like OpenSTEF and Power Grid model, and being a member of LF Energy, the Dutch Grid Operator Alliander aims to unleash the power of open source collaboration to further the energy transition. OpenSTEF provides a complete software stack that forecasts the load on the electricity grid for the next hours to days. Given a time series of measured load or generation, a fully automated machine learning pipeline is executed which delivers a probabilistic forecast of future load. Power-grid-model is a Python library for steady-state distribution power system analysis. Currently, it supports the following calculations: 1) Symmetric and asymmetric power flow calculation with Newton-Raphson method and linear method, and 2) Symmetric and asymmetric state estimation with an iterative linear method. In this talk, we will tell you more about the OpenSTEF project and Power Grid Model project, and how these projects support the adoption of renewable energy in the Netherlands.
