The name krangpower

Remember the Ninja Turtles? Krang, one of their enemies, was a genius-grade brain that could clumsily move only with his two little tentacles, so he used a bionic suit in order to gain strength and the ability to move and operate with ease. OpenDSS, too, is a genius-grade brain that can interact with the world only through a vintage COM interface. Krangpower is an attempt to endow it with an empowering suit. Dimension X will be ours.

The developers

We’re a SUPSI research team and we study smart grid and smart energetic systems algorithms and control. Federico Rosato, the main dev of krangpower, takes care in particular of the electric grid simulation frameworks.
