Pylon is a port of MATPOWER to the Python programming language. Its purpose is to provide a simple yet powerful tool for Power Engineering that is not tied to proprietary software and can be used and extended with ease.
Pylon’s features currently include:
$ easy_install pylon
Pylon will attempt to recognise the format of a data file, solve the AC power flow problem and output a ReStructuredText report by default:
$ pylon case.raw
Full details of the command line options are available:
$ pylon --help
Refer to the documentation for detailed usage information.
Pylon is developed by Richard Lincoln (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Pylon is translated from MATPOWER by R. D. Zimmerman, C. E. Murillo-Sanchez & D. Gan.
Pylon is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council through Grant GR/T28836/01.
