# Functions¶

This section lists important functions for running a time series simulation. It introduces the time series main function and the auxiliary methods for preparing a time series simulation. Furthermore, various internal functions are listed.

## Functions for Preparation¶

To prepare a time series simulation, classes/ methods of pandapower are accessed. DFData is derived from the DataSource class. The controller ConstControl is also required and can be found in chapter Controller. In the following all functions for the preparation are listed:

## Further Functions¶

The following functions are called within run_timeseries_ppipe.

control_diagnostic(net, respect_in_service=True)

Diagnostic function to find obvious mistakes in control data

cleanup(ts_variables)
