Functional overview

FARAO toolbox functional perimeter is declined following three main development axis:

  • Business data modelisation - providing a java modelisation of all the business objects for power systems coordinated capacity calculation and security analysis projects.
  • Computation engines - providing open interface and efficient implementation of standard tools for supporting capacity calculation projects.
  • Exchange standards interface - providing importers and exporters to support ENTSOE exchange data interface in projects implementation.

By extending the PowSyBl framework, FARAO aims at providing an open, transparent, and extandable implementation of the tools used for an efficient usage of the electricity transport and distribution system.
