pandapower combines the data analysis library `pandas <>`_ and the power flow solver `PYPOWER <>`_ to create an easy to use network calculation program
aimed at automation of analysis and optimization in power systems.

pandapower is a joint development of the research group Energy Management and Power System Operation, University of Kassel and the Department for Distribution System
Operation at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology (IWES), Kassel.

**Element Models**

pandapower is an element based network calculation tools that supports the following components:

- lines
- two-winding and three-winding transformers
- ideal bus-bus and bus-branch switches
- static generators, loads and shunts
- external grid connections
- synchronous generators
- DC lines
- network equivalents (unsymmetric impedances, ward equivalents)

**Network Analysis**

pandapower supports the following network analysis functions:

- power flow
- optimal power flow
- state estimation
- short-circuit calculation according to IEC 60909
- topological graph searches

For more information, please referr to the `documentation <>`_.

Installation notes can be found `here <>`_.

Interactive tutorials for a comfortable introducion into pandapower can be found `here <>`_.
