Resource description

Dynaωo aims at providing power system stakeholders with a transparent, flexible, interoperable and robust suite of simulation tools that could ease collaboration and cooperation in the power system community. To achieve this goal, Dynaωo is based on two mains principles: the use of a high-level modelling language Modelica and a strict separation between the modelling and the solving parts.

Dynaωo is an hybrid C++/Modelica complete and coherent open source suite of simulation tools for power systems, sharing the same philosophy:

  • DynaFlow for steady-state calculations
  • DySym for short-circuit calculations
  • DynaWaltz for long-term stability simulations
  • DynaSwing for short-term stability studies
  • DynaWave for stability studies and system design with a high-penetration of power-electronics based components (quasi-EMT)
