Introduction • Currently there are many formats for storing data for power system simulation. • Among them, PSS/E and IEEE Common Data Format [1] are well known. • Software companies and open-source groups, such InterPSS and PSAT, developed and provides utilities to import data in these formats into their applications. • It has been observed that the direction is mainly one way, importing data in different formats into their simulation applications, but not in the other way, exporting data to different data formats. • This has made robust and reliable power system simulation study case information exchange very difficult, if not impossible.

Introduction • Except IEEE CDF, these data formats are often not well documented. • Most data format documents are not publicly available. • A simple math calculation tells us that if there are N data formats and M applications, the possible filtering/converting routes in the above diagram are NxM.

Introduction • The Open Model for Exchanging Power System Simulation Data, ODM - Open Data Model for short, is a possible solution. • The IEEE Common Data Format (CDF) is not only not flexible, is also limited to static data, which makes it useless for dynamic and market studies.

PowerFactory Import/Export • Projects (or any folder in the data base) can be exported using the *.dz or the *.pfd (PowerFactory Data) file format. • Whenever possible it is recommended to use the new PFD format (*.pfd). This format (*.pfd) is improved for handling even very large projects. • The performance of the import/export has been optimized and the consumption of memory resources is much lower than with the old file format (*.dz). • All new functions available in the data base of PowerFactory, e. g. time stamps and versions, are fully supported with the new PFD file format.
