couples a network emulation based on Containernet with a static power flow simulator based on pandapower.
The network emulation allows realistic network traffic down to Layer 2 and further enables the inclusion of physical devices for analyses of device specfic behaviors. On the networking side, provides reference implementations for remote terminal units (RTUs) and the master terminal unit (MTU) and comes with a wrapper for IEC104-based communication.
The power simulator offerst on-demand static power flow computations, that derive the steady-state based on the current grid configuration.
For allowing interactions between the power grid and the networking side, uses a dedicated coordinator, which allows each networking node to interact with the power grid assets as well as the simulation results, and triggers and coordinates the power flow calculations.
