The coupling of natural gas networks and other energy sectors like the power grid is becoming increasingly essential for a low-carbon, environmental-friendly integrated energy system. The existing natural gas transmission network can work as a backbone in the whole energy system. Efficient and effective network data processing, network flow calculations, and powerful results visualization are all required when analyzing a large gas network on a high-resolution regional level. This paper will demonstrate and discuss a gas network simulation framework along with a complete toolchain to fulfill the task using the German gas transmission network.
