Dear openmodders, liebe Stromis,

Some good news for those working with European transmission models based
on openly-available data.

As part of the extension of Flow-Based Market Coupling (FBMC) from
FR-DE-BE-NL-LU eastwards this year to encompass the "Core" European
countries (FR-DE-BE-NL-LU-PL-CZ-SK-SI-HU-RO-HR-AT), the grid operators
published in December 2021 a Static Grid Model covering these Core

"The aim of the publication of the SGM is to allow market participants
to do market analyses in order to enhance efficiency in the market."

Unlike previously-published models, this has a uniform format, thermal
ratings for different seasons, non-obscured substation names and all
electrical parameters and lengths. (E.g. unlike the previous data tables
on TSO websites which were different for each TSO, or the TYNDP and
BNetzA grid models which often had cryptic or obscured substation names
which hinders georeferencing).

My colleague Fabian Neumann ( has georeferenced
90% of the substations automatically and will publish the code and
results soon. If anyone wants to help him to manually georeference the
other 10%, please get in touch with him! It shouldn't take too long.

Best wishes,
