Overview of all available data

The download area contains all important data and information created in the project SimBench. These include in particular the SimBench datasets and publications.

A paper describing SimBench has been published in MDPI Energies. Please acknowledge the usage of pandapower by citing this paper:


Since the dataset basically consists of 13 grids, from the low to the extra high voltage level, but studies typically do not simulate the all voltage levels at once, we already provide a large number of useful grid combinations. The available SimBench GUI helps you to select a grid combination suitable for your application.

Small bug fixes of the dataset are included in the dataset available here. You can find an overview in the changelog of the GitHub repository. For older versions please use the history of the repository or our contact form.


SimBench results were presented at various conferences and research network meetings. For a better understanding of what and how the grid data were created and how the data can be used, we recommend to have a look into the published documents as well as the complete SimBench documentation.
