Documentation

DPsim is a solver library for dynamic power system simulation.

  • It supports both the electromagnetic transient (EMT) and dynamic phasor (DP) domain for dynamic simulation.
  • A powerflow solver is included standalone usage or initialization of dynamic simulations.
  • It provides a Python module which can be embedded in any Python 3 application / scripts.
  • The simulation core is implemented in highly-efficient C++ code.
  • It supports real-time execution with time-steps down to 50 uS.
  • It can load models in the IEC61970 Common Information Model (CIM) XML format.
  • It can be interfaced to a variety of protocols and interfaces via VILLASnode.
